Infact, its working principle is based on near-filed coupling between the hands of the theremin player and two metal antennas, used to determine the pitch of a variable-frequency oscillator and to adjust the volume of the output signal, respectively. Several theremin implementation are possible, such as the “original” analog one (based on the mixing of two sine waves originated by a fixed-frequency oscillator and a variable-frequency one) and those based on digital techniques.

Officine Arduino Torino is a combination of Makerspace, Fablab and an Arduino “office” dedicated to further the development of the platform and open source hardware. Officine Arduino is born out of the experience of creating the first FabLab in Italy during an exhibition that lasted throughout 2011. The human side of Arduino. The Making of Arduino. For Banzi, this is perhaps the most important impact of Arduino: the democratization of engineering.

The Making of Arduino

"Fifty years ago, to write software you needed people in white aprons who knew everything about vacuum tubes. Now, even my mom can program," Banzi says. "We’ve enabled a lot of people to create products themselves. " Not all engineers love Arduino. The more persnickety ones bemoan the product for dumbing down product creation and flooding the hobbyist market with lackluster goods. Leah buechley - LilyPad Arduino - introduction.

For a slightly revised version, click here (updated to software version 1.05). The Arduino Playground has a version of the PDF I prepared with blank word balloons and text fields, and also my script with notes if you want to translate it. They also have versions in other languages. If you translate it, please let me know. Here are links to some of the translations, there’s more on the Arduino site. Arduino Labs - Home Page browse.

What Arduino can do Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators.


The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer (e.g. Store - community and electronics. Test the Pachube library running on Arduino. Coding and the API For code and programming questions, pose them to the Xively community on Stack Overflow.

Test the Pachube library running on Arduino

Many of our engineers actively participate in responding to questions there, alongside topic experts in various programming languages and hardware platforms under the 'Xively' tag. It's a great place to troubleshoot code you’ve been working on, and look for related questions. Arduino. Meditation strikes a special chord with me as a maker because it is said to foster creativity, intuition, imagination, and fantasy. I can't think of traits better suited to making.

I've tried meditation in the past, but it didn't seem to stick. When I saw that NeuroSky's Mindwave headsets had dropped to $100, I couldn't resist trying meditation again, this time with feedback.
