Lilypad Arduino + mBLOCK

En Febrero del 2018 con motivo del día de la mujer y la niña en la Ciencia se celebraron en Fuerteventura un ciclo de talleres formativos. Entre ellos yo propuse dos talleres en  homenaje a Leah Buechley, pionera en la introducción de los e-textiles en el campo educativo y creadora de la placa Lilypad Arduino.

Paper circuits / LilyTwinkle

Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. In this tutorial we will learn how to make an abstract digital artworkand include a soft circuit to make it interactive. We will use conductive thread and AgIC’s circuit markerthat contains silver, which makes the ink conductive, turning the paper into an electric circuit. Continue reading “Paper circuits / LilyTwinkle”

CONTEMPORARY E-BROIDERY

Embroidery in art is a wide-ranging technique. Over the last few years, a new generation of textile and mixed media artists have been honour traditional techniques but use them in combination with more contemporary mediums or methods to create artwork that is original and refreshing. Today, traditional crafting techniques can be interwoven with new materials such as conductive ink, fabric, thread and more to generate “soft” interfaces. This allow so many artists to explored the marriage of traditional embroidery and electronics. Continue reading “CONTEMPORARY E-BROIDERY”

Arduino

Arduino es una plataforma de código abierto que se utiliza para la construcción de proyectos de electrónica. Una placa Arduino consiste tanto en un tablero de circuito físico programable, denominado también como un microcontrolador y un programa que se puede desarrollar en el  Arduino IDE(Entorno de Desarrollo Integrado) que se ejecuta en un ordenador, Continue reading “Arduino”
