A small electronic board that allows you to create numerous devices, from light and speed controllers, to light, temperature and humidity sensors. It is an open-source software and its hardware is completely free. Simplify and make technology available to everyone: this is the mission of Arduino.
What can Arduino do for architecture?
A lot. Arduino is a "brain" for objects, spaces, installations, or architectures. It can control the opening or closing of a window based on humidity, irrigate a vertical wall, change the light based on the number of people present, or whatever the designer wants to do. Its power is flexibility. And of course, simplicity.
What are the Arduino laboratories developing today?
Arduino continues with its work of spreading open source and sharing. We continue to try to simplify the use of electronics and programming, to make it accessible to everyone. The democratization of technology is fundamental for us. One thing is even more important, how many more people can access it. The fields in which this knowledge applies are infinite: teaching, robotics, self-construction, design, architecture, art, music, crafts and so on. You can not think it's a niche.
What is the most innovative sensor that can be used with Arduino?
Currently, the most developed sensors are environmental and biomedical ones. The former allow us to "see" the invisible things around us, in our homes, streets or cities, such as pollution, connection networks and electromagnetic fields. Biomedical sensors, on the other hand, allow us to "see" within ourselves, from heartbeat to stress, to relaxation and muscle tension. But innovation is not just technology, but also art, architecture and design.
At Techblueprint.net we provide training on Arduino as well as kits that you can buy and start building your sensors and robots.
Come join us in the DIY Maker Movement!
We are currently giving away the basic Arduino kit for free (pay for shipping only). Pick one up and start building today.
