Micro-controllers + Art
Saturday 07/09/2019 10:00 – 12:00; 13:00 – 15:00 Råhuset, Copenhagen

Nicolas Padfield is one of the founders of the art collective Illutron and a technology guru at Fablab RUC. In this 2 hour workshop he will give the participants an introduction to the world of creative engineering, tech and art and makerspaces through hands-on building and coding of arduino-based IoT pieces. He will take the participants through the coding of simple arduino-based games and end with their own creating of functional products, e.g interactive neopixel art pieces or singing plant theremins.
Artists: Fablab RUC, Nicolas Padfield (DK)

Examples:
Nicolas'

void setup() {  
  // put your setup code here, to run once:
  pinMode(12, INPUT_PULLUP);
  pinMode(13, OUTPUT);

}

void loop() {  
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

  int i = digitalRead(12);
  int j = analogRead(A0);


  if (j > 500) {
    digitalWrite(13, HIGH);
  }
  else {
    digitalWrite(13, LOW);
  }


/*
  if (i == HIGH) {
    digitalWrite(13, HIGH);
  }
  else {
    digitalWrite(13, LOW);
  }
*/

}

FastLED
In Arduino, go to the menu item "sketch" > include library > manage libraries. Search for FastLED and install it.
Then file > examples > FastLED (near bottom, under "custom libraries") > Demoreel100

ADCtouch

In Arduino, go to the menu item "sketch" > include library > manage libraries. Search for ADCtouch and install it.
Then file > examples > ADCtouch (near bottom, under "custom libraries") > Buttons
