We prepared for you a simple program made of :
   a) quick intro to the Arduino board functions / decryption of a few inspirational projects (from sound, to geometrical figure, wearables and more upon demand !)
   b) testing of the platform with basic applications (LED blink, etc)
   c) Q&A + sharing about potential personal projects you would be interested in building with (or without) peers

Points spring painting workshop – March 29th

March 26th, 2014 § 2 comments § permalink

春暖,让我们脱下厚重的衣服,春天的色彩是自然给与特别礼物,这个春天让我们用圆圆的各式各样的点来描绘这个春天, 色彩是自然界最生动的表现, 色彩赋予形体以灵魂,正如声音赋予语言以情感.虽然点作为小小的,不起眼的元素,在重复,渐变,并置的情况下让画面呈现春天般的形式美感. 生活就是一个全新的发现过程.快来把属于你的春天带回家吧!

Spring come, we take off the thick clothes, The spring colour is special gift from nature, let’s go! Use difference points describing spring. Colour is the most vivid performance of the nature beauty. As the voice giving the feeling to the language, the colour gives the soul to the body.

Although points is small and humble element, usually, expressions with repetition, gradation, rhythm and unification made paintings greatly beautiful in form. Life is a new discovery experience. Hurry up! Bring your own spring back home.

工作坊内容 Workshop Content:

在这次的工作坊中,大家将制作一个简单有趣的设计:摸摸摸 - 超绚的银色触摸界面,经典的六触摸点噪音电路,由Michel Waisvisz在七十年代设计。在轻触间把各种奇妙声音展现。无需繁杂的操作,快来感受指尖的曼妙的歌声。

制作简单方便,自带喇叭,随时随地,你都可以随身携带把玩。听,你的手指在唱歌!对于身体的变化非常敏感,甚至以几个人连起来进行演奏。

首先你们将会了解摸摸摸的电路基本原理,以及它声音变化的原因,随后大家动手焊接组装,组装完成后就可以尽情享受探索声音的乐趣了!

In this workshop, you will learn how to make your own Crackle box – MoMoMo. MoMoMo designed by Meng Qi, the concept was first conceived by Michel Waisvisz and Geert Hamelberg in the 1960s, it is a small box with six metal contacts on top, which when pressed by fingers will generate all manner of unusual sounds and tones.

First you will learn the basic principle of the circuit – how it can make different sounds. After that, you will learn how to solder and assemble the parts step by step. Once you’re finished, there you are in the world of sounds! Start exploring!

For members who don’t know how to handle the tools safely and correctly, this is your chance to learn to operate the tools in the right way and to protect yourself from getting injured. We’ve got some dangerous tools there in the machine room. You don’t want to mishandle these ones.

We have invited Niels to give us the training.  He will show you how to use the machines one by one. Be prepared to cut and drill and get your hands dirty!
