Digital Arts Studios Belfast, Northern Ireland


Open Electronics with Neo Pixel

Neo pixel

This Future Labs workshop will introduce attendees to the Arduino development ecosystem, basic electronics prototyping, the use of sensors/displays on the Arduino platform to provide input/output, and using Bluetooth, WiFi and MQTT to send/receive information/triggers remotely to trigger actions and events, including triggering musical and visual compositions. 

The first half of the workshop will focus on developing a working knowledge of the Arduino development platform. This will range from simple operations such as flashing an LED up to streaming sensor values to a live web portal. The workshop will then explore how to take these sensor values and use them to generate real-time audio experiences.

This is a great introduction to both the practical world of electronics, and the concepts of physical computing inherent in the burgeoning field of IoT.

This workshop is facilitated by Andrew Bolster, a Data Scientist and Systems Researcher with a wide range of skills and experiences across technical, business, and entrepreneurial fields. Andrew is the founder/director of Farset Labs; https://andrewbolster.info/

Workshops costs £40 per day or £30 for DAS / VAI members. For further information or to attend this workshop please contact Future Labs Co-ordinator Paul Moore at .
