Arduino’s birthday is fast approaching, and with it a global celebration of everything that’s been achieved with it in the year. 64 countries will host 300 events in every continent, bringing together beginners to experts, hobbyists to professionals. East London’s ‘London Arduino’ will host their event on Saturday the 2nd of April at Machines Room, a space for hackers, artists and designers to build their ideas.
The day will be full of inspiration from London’s best Arduino hackers who will bring along their projects, including Tim Yate’s capacitative touch matrix instrument, Vulpestrument’s DIY instruments, Martin Lindupp’s flight controllers, Neil McGrath’s Stop the Train game, Stamou Instrument’s hacked sound toys, Josh Elijah’s robots and lasers, and Let’s Make Robots by Francisco Dominguez Roman.
For those wanting to learn about working with Arduino, experts (including Techmog’s Lily Madar) will hold a selection of workshops and offer some friendly advise.
James Cadman will take attendees through the basics with Arduino 101. Lily will teach us how to make an adorable sewable wearable. Littlebits will teach us about electronics and rapid-prototyping. And for kids, mBot will be showing us around their robotics learning kit.
The event is free with a small charge of £10 for the workshops. RSVP and get your tickets here.
