Florence has been the cradle of the Renaissance around the 14th century. It’s amusing to think that another Renaissance happened in Italy several hundred years later, in 2005, this time in the world of connected marchines. The Arduino board was created and ignited an incredibly rich community of makers, developers, and industrials who all cooperate for building the core of the things that surround us.
There are actually many options for building connected solutions today, and Benjamin discusses the importance of having a vivid open source ecosystem around IoT to ensure that key aspects like developer adoption and interoperability are not left aside.

  • 14. https://www.flickr.com/photos/cibergaita/97220057/ Communication Around 1450, Gutenberg improved the movable type system It introduced the era of mass communication we still live in
  • 15. https://www.flickr.com/photos/cibergaita/97220057/ Communication in 2014 Open source communities and social networks foster open innovation and developers engagement Open communication protocols like MQTT or CoAP are movable type for Things
  • 16. Movable press and printing type were not the only technical advancements during Renaissance Tools
  • 17. Floating dock
  • 18. Lifting tower (crane)
  • 19. Sea astrolabe
  • 20. etc.
  • 21. Fab labs & hackerspaces make tools accessible to the majority Tools in 2014
  • 22. Tools in 2014
  • 23. Fab labs & hackerspaces make tools accessible to the majority Tools in 2014 Prototyping platforms like Arduino and programming languages like Javascript make hardware hacking easier
  • 24. Wealthy people like the Medicis or the Borgias sponsored many artists during the Renaissance We probably wouldn’t know of Leonardo, Michelangelo or Raphael if it weren’t for them Patrons
  • 25. Patrons in 2014 Raspberry Pi Foundation is promoting the study of basic computer science in schools, and develops the Raspberry Pi Intel® is donating 50,000 Galileo boards to 1,000 universities worldwide And many more… ARM, Texas Instruments, …
