Japanese interactive media and installation artist who has also created a number of commercial video games. In addition he has worked in television, music performance, museum design and digital musical instrument design.
a graphical programming language developed by Miller Puckette in the 1990s for the creation of interactive computer music and multimedia works.
Pd is an open source project and has a large developer base working on new extensions to the program
Pd is very similar in scope and design to Puckette's original Max program (developed while he was at IRCAM), and is to some degree interoperable with Max/MSP
Dataflow programming languages. In such languages, functions or "objects" are linked or "patched" together in a graphical environment which models the flow of the control and audio.
is "a programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) built for the electronic arts and visual design communities", which aims to teach the basics of computer programming in a visual context, and to serve as the foundation for electronic sketchbooks.
The language builds on the graphical capabilities of the Java programming language

It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring ) and the Arduino deve lopmen t environment (based on Processing ). Arduino projects can be stand-a lone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP). http://www.pachube.com /
Data visualization is the study of the visual representation of data , meaning "information which has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information"
Creating images that communicate clearly out of often impenetrable data
