Bend Arduino Group Members:
Here are two video (4 minutes each) of creative applications that Intel paid to have made demonstrate the potential the new Intel Galileo Arduino device.
Making its debut at last week’s Rome Maker Faire, the YesYesBot is a retro-inspired, candy dispensing robot created by interactive collective YesYesNo and brought to life with 3D printed parts, motors, LEDs, Linux software, and the new Galileo microprocessor board by Intel. In part two of our Makers series (watch Part I here), Zach Lieberman, YesYesNo founder and a key mastermind behind openFrameworks, the C++ coding toolkit and creative community, and collaborator Molmol Kuo walk us through the creation of the sweet new robot and offer a step-by-step guide below for creating your own YesBot.
“1) Design a robot. (((Good start!)))
“For this we looked at historical references, such as Electro, the robot from the Worlds Faire in 1939, or Japanese robots from the 80′s. We wanted to make something fun and retro, and we knew we didn’t have a lot of time to work on locomotion, so we went with wheels for the base….”

You Can Now Program a Light Spectacular Via Smartphone
With exciting implications for glowing furniture of the future, interactive studio Second Story has created a collaborative drawing canvas that allows users to control ambient lighting using their mobile phones via the new Intel® Galileo microprocessor board.
With exciting implications for glowing furniture of the future, interactive studio Second Story has created Lyt, a collaborative drawing canvas that allows users to control ambient lighting using their mobile phones via the new Intel Galileo microprocessor board. Unveiled today at Maker Faire Rome, Galileo allows for everything from touch senstive lights to mobile phone activated lasers, and will be the first in an ongoing roll-out of Arduino-compatible development boards presented by Intel.
Easy to use, this platform allows creators the chance to evolve highly complex works with relative ease. In our look at Lyt (above), the first in an upcoming series exploring makers hacking Galileo's interface, the folks at Second Story walk us through their use of the board, and the opportunity it presents for creators big and small to expand their design aspirations.
Below, we've asked Second Story to break down how they created the advanced set up that allows users to paint space with color, lines, and movement using their smartphones.
