Make Robot Brains!

15 SPOTS ONLY!  EMAIL JSTURGES (AT) OMNICORPDETROIT.COM TO REGISTER!

So you’ve always wanted to make a robot, or a gadget, or some interactive art weirdness, but electronics and programming make you freak out.  Spazzz no more!  The OCD disintelligencia will teach you the basics of the Arduino microcontroller.  The Arduino is like a wee robot brain that can sense things and make things happen.  It is relatively inexpensive, easy to use, and fits in your armpit for easy transport. We’ll go over the Arduino itself as well discuss the basics of analog and digital electronics, inputs/outputs, programming, etc and then convince it to do simple fun stuff like blink lights and write messages.  Hell, we might just do more of these workshops if folks are feelin’ the Robolove.

You’ll need to bring a laptop.  If you simply cannot get ahold of one, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
