What could be better than spending a weekend learning about Arduino, the favorite open source hardware hacking platform for designers, artists and hobbyists.
Aimed at students, artists, and designers or anyone who wants to learn the basics of Arduino, simple electronics and building interactive projects
TinkerLondon has been running monthly workshop around Arduino and its uses in creative uses since 2007. TinkerLondon is a mulitdisiplinary design studio based in London. We design interactive products that bridge the physical and the digital. We help our clients develop innovative design practices in their business using open-source tools. We research new areas where design and open source technologies intersect and share the results.
This event is kindly hosted by Space Studios.
