Introducing Arduino & Physical Computing

Sat 29th March 2014

10am - 5:30pm

For functionality, for art, or just for making life more interesting, you'll learn: to configure and program the Arduino, to prototype circuits, to interact with sensors and other common components, and to communicate with Processing software running on your computer. After completing the course, you'll understand not just the limitless creative possibilities of the Arduino, but how to integrate them into larger projects. The course includes your first Arduino Uno, as well as all necessary cables and a stash of buttons, sensors and LEDS to get you hacking the real world (worth over £60).

Your tutor: James Medd

James Medd is an artist, musician, and maker who crams Arduino into every aspect of his life, whether it’s in robotic sculptures, interactive installations, email-checking lamps, or location-aware kettles.

He first picked up an Arduino in 2009 with the view to building his own music controllers and has continued to develop his physical computing skills through various self-led projects. In 2011 he used an Arduino to power a mirror mask (check it out here) which was featured at MOSI’s Mini Maker Faire. He now runs an Arduino user group at MadLab which takes place on the last Tuesday of the month.

James has taught Arduino and all things digital art across Europe, and strives to bring ideas to life, whether they be practical, bizarre, or a bit of both. He is Technological and Retail Coordinator at MadLab and has recently run workshops for Blackburn is Open, a pop-up arts centre initiated by Wayne Hemingway and for Manchester City Council.

Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab) is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester UK. Our primary areas of focus are science and technology; arts and culture.

We support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new & emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.

Our main base of operations is a three-storey, 3000 square foot Industrial Revolution-era former weavers’ cottage centrally located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We are less than ten minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria train stations, and just two minutes walk from the Arndale Shopping Centre.
