Past Meetup

Physical Computing Club — 1.0

This Meetup is past

20 people went


~ Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Interactive installations, Creative coding, Hardware hacking…
If that sounds familiar (or inviting) then it’s time for you to join the Physical Computing Club!

We will work in groups or on our own and will show and share what we’ll learn at the end of the meeting in an informal show&tell tea party.

Bring your ideas and all the tools you think you’ll need for your hack.
Feel free to use the comment section of this event to share your idea and discuss how to realize them.

Meeting 1.0
~ The theme for the first meeting will be “Surfing On Sine Waves (Arduino + Sound)”: how to generate and manipulate audio signals with a simple microcontroller, creating synthesizers, sequencers or interactive sound/music devices.

What is it?
~ The physical computing club is a monthly gathering open to all enthusiasts to tinker, hack and collaborate on hardware projects and share our experiences.

Every meeting will have a theme and will feature a “maker in house” to inspire us with a lighting talk on the theme of the day, and help us learning new hardware and coding tricks.

Some of the planned themes so far:
- surfing on sine waves (Arduino and Sound), going wireless (Wifi modules), e-textiles (Lilypad), PCB prototyping (Fritzing/Eagle), making sensors, serial communication, visualize it (Processing), ...

Note: this an advanced topic hack day, not a workshop, and as such not very suitable for beginners. (If you’re a complete beginner in physical computing don’t be scared, OTS will be giving an “Intro to Arduino Workshop” that will give you the chance to feel comfortable with the basics of electronics and creative coding! Look for a beginner workshop to take place early on in the new year!)

Feel free to bring snacks!
