Intro to Arduino, the Pixy Camera, and a stress relieving teardown
It's finals week, and things are intense. You need to refresh with something visceral. Circuit Studio and Lee Cherry are here to help!
Heads up! This event will not take place at our usual Hunt Library, but rather at Circuit Studio on main campus, on the first floor of Ricks Hall Addition, the two-story building in between the 1911 Building and Ricks Hall (and a stone's throw from Hillsborough St.).
Circuit Studio is new facility created by the university's College of Arts and Social Sciences, supporting projects in digital media, digital humanities, physical computing, and mobiles. It's equipped with all things Arduino, a Makerbot, Kinect and a Brainwave headset. Jameson Hogan, a doctoral student at the studio, will be showing us the ropes. He'll introduce us to Arduino, and likely also help us break down some old tech!
Lee Cherry is a Research Associate at the College of Design, and one of the most successful on campus at bridging technology and design. He has over 10 years of experience developing interactive experiences with a broad range of companies and organizations. He'll be introducing us to his Pixy camera.
Even more than usual, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to stick our hands in some silicon, muck around, and get to know one another.
