Arduino Projects #1

ArduinoImage 1
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Using Arduino on my personal projects is one of my main objectives , I already have got one board and started making some experiments I´ll wait to have some meaningful results to share them with you , in  the mean time I´m going to be posting  some projects and experiments made with Arduino that I find along the way ,hope you enjoy them.
Calvin Harris Human Synth

Through the power of skin-safe conductive ink and Arduino, Scottish electronic artist Calvin Harris has collaborated with a team to make a synthesizer out of himself and a group of models in bikinis.

ArduinoImage 2

Made by students from Ball Satate Universtity Morpholuminescence is an installation for fashion photography it is programed to find its form and provide optimized lighting, enhancing the experience of trying on clothing. Differences in height are read by the sensors and interpreted by two Arduino microprocessors which drive servo-motors, in order to actuate the surface.

  • These projects are very provocative! I do wonder, though, how these digital technologies will transform our understanding of physical reality. With the ink project, the product is usual (music), but the method is highly unusual. Traditional music has always been directly associated with method. I wonder how this shift towards somewhat ambiguous methods will affect our appreciation of the product…
