Celerbrate World-Wide Arduino Day 10-Year Anniversary

Arduino Day Open House

Saturday, March 29, 2014 • 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. • Downtown Bend Library

Arduino Day is a world-wide celebration of Arduino’s first 10 years

Great opportunity for Arduino people to meet each other in Bend

March 10, 2014 (Bend, Oregon) — What exactly is Arduino? According to the official website “Arduino is an open- source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.” If that still doesn’t clear things up, know that Arduino is cool, hip and is the latest craze in the Maker movement. Arduino technology was created for the average person without advanced engineering knowledge to build amazing and interesting devices of their own creation.

Learn about Arduino and watch technology in action at the Downtown Bend Library on Saturday, March 29 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. The open house is free and open to the public and is part of the worldwide celebration of Arduino. 

Arduino Day is 24 hours full of events, both official and independent where people interested in Arduino can meet, share their experiences and learn more. David Robson, organizer of the event and members of the Bend Arduino Group will be on hand to explain Arduino’s  multi- purpose, real world, applications. We are asking everyone active in Arduino technology to come and meet others and bring their favorite project. “We’ll have Arduino projects on display, including a newly upgraded high school team's Solar Car that uses Arduino technology for the dashboard control system, an Arduino-based Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with live first person camera and GPS navigation, a diagnostic device invented by local equine entrepreneur, Kelly Barnett that aims to save lame horses from being euthanized by revolutionizing the equine field, a project for the high school robotics team and many projects from members of the Bend Arduino Group. ”People are welcome to drop by anytime for demonstrations and information.

The Arduino Open House is a precursor to workshops that will be included in the Library’s Summer Reading schedule. Thanks to the support of local organizations and businesses including, The Tech Alliance of Central
Oregon, SmartWaiver and the Bend Arduino Group, 20 Arduino Starter Kits will be available for workshop participants to experience Arduino.

    Does anyone know who the guy is who had the motion-tracking project that followed the flashlight around?

      Micah, that is Chad Knight. He showed it at one of our meetings a while ago. Pretty cool project.

    I saw your other note too. David Robson would be your best bet for any questions. I'll make sure he gets back to you.

    And thanks for making the trip over here. I wish I could be here to see your work.

    LagerBot will be there after all. Not pouring anything but in "science fair" demo mode. We'll have materials, etc.
