ARDUINO: Building an Internet-Controlled Lamp

During this full weekend workshop, you will learn how to build your own lamp. Not just any lamp, but an internet-connected one that changes color the way you want it, through the use of Wi-Fi & the Internet. To achieve this, you’ll learn the basics of different technologies: electronics, soldering, programming with Arduino and WiFi. We explain it step-by-step, to make sure you’ll understand the process, even as a complete beginner. Developers with some programming experience have the opportunity to expand the capabilities of the lamp even more. What to think of changing the color from a ‘Processing’-app on your phone? Or making the color blink blue, if it’s raining outside?

 

This course is for:
All levels: we explain the basics to everyone, while letting more advanced users express their creativity.

Material required:
A PC with Arduino 1.6.6 installed (important, previous versions will not work) and working Wi-Fi. A Smartphone / tablet is a plus. We will be using the Arduino software but not the Arduino board.

Artistic guidance:
Hugo Herter (Who’s this?)
