Physical Computing workshop

19 February - 20 February 2005
Physical Computing workshop
by Eric Singer

The workshop is structured on hooking up sensors and robotics for interactive computer art projects. Eric uses as prototyping platform its MidiTron, a computer interface board he developed for connecting sensors, actuators, and all kind of devices measuring or acting on the physical world (see http://eroktronix.com). He takes students through basic electronics, Max, sensors, robotics (motors, relays) and more, enabling them to begin their own projects at the conclusion of the workshop. Each pair of student will have a MidiTron board plus a lab kit including protoboard, parts and sensors.
