Week8: Making your won circuit


This week, we make our own PCB design. Lucas Bahle will be showing you how to design PCB on fritzing software and convert it to the file so that CNC milling machine can read it, and we will mill our first PCB! Please download fritzing software from http://fritzing.org/download/ PCB is a short name for Printed […]

week7: Arduino and computer


This week’s topic is “How to connect physical object with computers” download processing >> https://processing.org/download/ ( install 1.5.1 (15 May 2011) version and not the latest one) PureData >> http://puredata.info/ MaxMSP >> http://cycling74.com/downloads/older/ github example code for the course >> https://github.com/mikst/101/tree/master/week7 example1: Examples >> Communication >> Graph If you look at the Arduino sketch, it […]

Week6: Textile embedded electronics


This week’s theme: This week, we look into weaving technique as an example method to integrate electronics into materials. You can embed: – conductive thread to embed LED or other types of connections – conductive thread for heating element – EL wire – resistive thread/ yarn to make sensors You can also try knitting, paper […]

Week5: Kit of No Parts workshop


May 19th-21st, 10:00-17:00 eLab The workshop page >> http://www.kobakant.at/DIY/?p=5144 You can download the first day’s slide from here >> This “workshop” is a guest lecture by Hannah Perner-Wilson plus hands-on exercise in re-imagining techniques for making electronics to be more integrated in material and craft processes. Kit-of-No-Parts Recipes for Materially Diverse, Functionally Transparent and Expressive […]

Week3: DAY1 more sensors


Once again, Do you remember how to read sensors -digital sensor (PushButton) -analog sensor (photoCell) Challenge: Connect push button or photocell to your Arduino and check the input on SerialMonitor. ——code——— int photocellValue=0; int buttonValue=0; int buttonPin=5; int photocellPin=A4; // the setup routine runs once when you press reset: void setup() { // initialize serial […]
