We’re launching the Omniversity, housed at the Manchester Digital
Laboratory. The MadLab has been one of the country’s most successful hack
and creative digital culture spaces, attracting thousands of visitors to the
region and bringing in national and international talent to lead free
workshops and events. Every evening is double-booked with free
community-driven events around open platforms and professional development.
Building off the back of this success, and the huge network we’ve built,
we’re offering the Omniversity - an expert-lead series of training
programmes, designed to be affordable and lead by industry veterans and
in-the-trenches professionals, rather than full-time tutors. We’ll be
teaching people platforms from the near-future, without the cost overheads
that more formalised training providers impose.
This brings us nicely to the course of the *Beginners Guide to Arduino &
Physical Computing, *on 4th of June, 10am to 5.30pm.
Physical Computing’ and Arduino devices have made physical interaction
affordable and available to non-experts. Whether creating interactive
installations, information systems, prototyping products, or making new
interfaces, there is a whole world of DIY electronics, interaction design
and rapid prototyping available through this platform.
But what can you do with an Arduino? Here are some of our favourite projects
using the Arduino:-
- Joe Saavedra’s SOBEaR http://jmsaavedra.com/weblog/?p=572, the
responsible robot bartender
- Sosolimited’s HBO Snow
- Last but not least the MadLab/HAC:Man collaboration :
