Plug & Play Sensors & Puredata Workshop— taught by Servando Barreiro :: June 18-19, 2010; 2:00-7:00h pm :: NK, Elsenstr. 52/ 2.Hinterhaus Etage 2, 12059 Berlin Neukölln.
This workshop is an introduction to the world of the analog sensors (light, infrared, ultrasonic, accelerometer) that are used to control audio, video, midi applications and interactive installations. The “minitronics” board will be used to communicate with the computer because it’s cheap, plug&play, multi-platform and it doesn’t require any extra knowledge to use.
On the first day we will construct a “basic” sensor controller with a pair of light sensors and a pair of potentiometers. On the second day, I will explain the different interfacing possibilities with different softwares and also provide and explain some puredata patches that are ready to “work”. (all platforms)
