After diving into the world of moving electrons on day 1, the second day was dominated by exploring the “heart and soul” of Sketching with Hardware, the Italian-made microcontroller Arduino. With it´s easy to use programm-interface and broad community it is the perfect tool to support the implementation of our project-ideas. After clarifying the basics it was time to play around with sensors, servo-motors, transistors and LEDs. Lessons learned: Nothing is impossible, every idea has the potential to become an interactive reality!
The weekend is reserved to generate ideas for our projects, so now it was time for Sebastian and Hendrik to present the topic: This time the overarching theme is “Outdoor”, which is divided into “Traps”, “Distance” and “Energy Awareness”. Sounds fun!
