ModeLab has announced the next event in their coLab workshop series: Hybrid Prototypes.
Hybrid Prototypes is a two-day intensive design and prototyping workshop to be held in New York City the weekend of September 24-25, 2011.
The fast-paced workshop will focus on hardware and software prototyping techniques. Using remote sensors, microcontrollers (Arduino), and actuators, we will build virtual and physical prototypes that can communicate with humans and the world around them. Through a series of focused exercises and design tasks, each attendee will make prototypes that are configurable, sensate, and active. As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning.
Participants should be familiar with the basic concepts of parametric design and interface of Grasshopper and Arduino.
