Volumetrically light project with arduino

Volumetrically light is an installation that uses the light as a tool to draw volumes into the space. Installed in a closed room where spectators can enter and directly interact with it with a series of sensors. All the process is completely automated and there is no “master” needed to operate the installations.

Sensors and logics can be changed and adapted to the final space, so we can sense various parameters directly related to the audience as movement, temperature, light and sound.

The spectator observes how volumes change together with the sound and the ambient light trough the volume of the space. Continue Reading →


Encounters with Arduino workshop

This is the first time we are presenting this modality of arduino workshop as “encounter with Arduino”. The first of a series of encounters around the globe and the first experience we are having organizing an event like this. The encounter is presented as a free and open event in which participants bring their own ideas and build their projects, alone or in groups, no matter if it’s the first time you see an Arduino board or you have been working with it for years.

As initiation for those whom are starting for the first time with Arduino, there are a series of examples to build in order to understand the interface, the hardware and the way of programming. These are easy yet functional prototypes that can be built with the components included in the KIT of the encounter. Among these examples we can find projects like: Virutal traffic lights, Light meter, Quichen countdown clock, IR receiver, …

New encounters will follow in Holland and Spain, stay tuned!

Below you can find all the information about the encounter with Arduino in Cordoba, Argentina. Continue Reading →


Seed Counter Project

Months ago I received a proposal to build a seed counter project together with somebody for an internet seeds seller. I would take care of the electronics, design circuits, electronic parts and software of the controller. The other person would take care of the physical layer, building the machine itself, manufacturing the pieces assembly and the mechanical logic behind it. The intention was to create a machine able to count seeds of different kinds and automatically place them into plastic blisters ready to ship to customers. So it is actually an invention from scratch. We need to think about how to do thinks, how to control the parts to do the things we want, and put them all in place so they will work as they suppose to. In essence it is building your own mini robot. You give him a way of thinking and a body, and he needs to do the rest by itself. A piece of art with artificial intelligence.
