Now there are new ways to add real time motion to your tech projects!
Matt Howard will present an application-oriented look at open source hardware called Arduino and some very approachable new software called Processing to help beginners get started and to help more experienced experimenters expand into new areas.
Open source hardware? Indeed – along with powerful new high-level open source software that makes programming moving machines more practical and more effective.
Most people interested in making technology perform work are familiar with some of the principles and tools of software development. But what do you do if the task to be performed doesn’t exist simply on a computer screen – what if it requires a gadget that actually move and work in real time and space?
Updates – along with a sign-up form – will be posted at DokbotColumbus’ Web site and blog – http://dorkbot.org/dorkbotcolumbus .
This event will be held January 22, 2008 at 7pm. at TechColumbus, at 1275 Kinnear Rd. (Location provided courtesy of The Platform Lab, www.platformlab.org.)
