  38. 38. What is Arduino Michael Shiloh m.shiloh@arduino.cc Hands-on Arduino In this room later today and Saturday
  39. 39. Arduino Do It Yourself electronics Maker Movement Open Source Movement ● How Arduino lets non-engineers make their own complex electronic projects ● ● How this fits in with the Maker Movement ● ● What is the Open Source movement and ● How Arduino fits into that
  40. 40. What is Arduino? ● Piece of electronics that ● makes it easy to connect various sensors and components like LEDs, motors, and loudspeakers, ● ● and create relationships between them ● ● And also to connect to existing electronic devices ● ● Or to salvage parts from discarded electronics and repurpose them into new projects ●
  41. 41. What can I do with it? 2 cats: one on diet, one not
  42. 42. Why? Build something to solve a problem Build something because you want to ● You might have a specific need and a product for that simply does not exist ● ● The joy, satisfaction, and learning experience
  43. 43. Why? Build something to solve a problem Build something because you want to Maker Movement
  44. 44. Open Source Movement Sharing of instructions or techniques I mentioned earlier the Open Source Movement
  45. 45. Open Source Movement Sharing of instructions or techniques Recipe Song
  46. 46. Open Source Movement Sharing of instructions or techniques Recipe Song Designs for electronics (hardware) Programming (software)
  47. 47. Open Source Movement Sharing of instructions or techniques Recipe Song Designs for electronics (hardware) Programming (software) Learn, Use, Modify, Adapt, Repair, Improve If you have a way to share with others who use the recipe, you can contribute your changes
  48. 48. Is this new? Recipes Sewing patterns Woodworking plans Early radio Electronic magazines and books
  49. 49. So what's different now? Internet Speed and Number of people you can reach Interest seems to be increasing Acceptance (it's cool to make your own things again)
  50. 50. Arduino Designed for Interraction Designers to build functional prototypes without a degree in engineering
  51. 51. Arduino Designed for Interraction Designers to build functional prototypes without a degree in engineering Used by artists, hobbyists, experimentors, and designers of all sorts
  52. 52. ● Very simple robot project based on a coffee can ● Featured in Make Magazine #34 ● ● Disclosure: my partner Judy is the designer and author
  53. 53. Crafty way of working with Arduino
  54. 54. Other extreme: outer space 2.5” cube Sensors and radio and Arduino
  55. 55. $1000 for 4 students for 1 week of time to run experiments on the sattelite
  56. 56. Community Over 26 million hits for the word “arduino”
  57. 57. Community Examples for inspiration and learning Instructions One of the strengths of arduino is the community
  58. 58. Community Examples for inspiration and learning Instructions Instructables A particularly good example of online instruction is instructables
  59. 59. Remove Control Toyota Rediculous
  60. 60. Finger Print Door Lock Practical Constantly locking himself out of his apartment and ringing doorbell would wake up his newborn
  61. 61. Car Horn Prank Prank
  62. 62. Tokyo Hacker Space Geiger Counter Very serious
  63. 63. Arduino is not the first EZ-IO? Teleo Phidgets Basic Stamp
  64. 64. Nor the only Beagle Board Raspberry Pi
  65. 65. Choices (hardware and software) Complexity Features Price But seem to have made the right choices
  66. 66. Huge Community Examples Assistance Local community The other thing that makes arduino successful is the huge community
  67. 67. Uno Flagship 20 places to connect things like LEDs, motors, relays, sensors, switches, etc.
  68. 68. Mini Smaller version, slightly reduced capability
  69. 69. Mega Bigger version, about 50 places to connect
  70. 70. Esplora Has various sensors (buttons, joystick, acceleromoter, sound level sensor, temperature sensor, light level sensor, etc.) and output devices (LEDs, speaker) Others can be added but can write programs with what's on the board
  71. 71. LilyPad Connections are made via conductive thread
  72. 72. Yun Wifi Easy internet access Twitter, google mail, NPR database
  73. 73. Robot
  74. 74. Tre
  75. 75. GSM Shield
  76. 76. GSM Shield
  77. 77. Thanks Michael Shiloh m.shiloh@arduino.cc Hands-on Arduino In this room Today and Saturday
  78. 78. Michael Shiloh Education
