The Arduino case study: the impact of open source hardware on design
Monday May 21, 2012, 6:00 PM.
Arduino is an open source development platform for micro controllers (the tiny microcomputers that are inside everyday objects). Contrary to popular belief, it was developed in a design school, not an engineering school, and has become the tool of choice for many designers around the world to prototype interactive devices. What is the impact of this open source, non-proprietary hardware on design?
This talk will describe what Arduino is and what designers (and everyday people) are doing with it. Then we will discuss its impact and the innovations it enables. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
Massimo Banzi is the co-founder of the Arduino project. He is an interaction designer, educator and advocate for Open Source Hardware. Massimo started the first FabLab in Italy, which led to the creation of "Officine Arduino" a FabLab / Makerspace based in Turin. Massimo has taught workshops and has been a guest speaker at institutions all over the world. He is the author of Getting Started with Arduino and a regular contributor to the Italian edition of Wired Magazine and Che Futuro, an online magazine about innovation. Massimo currently teaches Interaction Design at SUPSI Lugano in the south of Switzerland and is a visiting professor at CIID in Copenhagen.
