CADA - Atmosferas Digital Arts Center is organizing "Let's Get Physical - P=
hysical Computing with Arduino", Lisbon, 3-6- May, Massimo Banzi.

About Arduino (www.arduino.cc)
Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o=
board and a development environment that implements the Processing languag=
e. Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be=
connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, Max/MSP). =
The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open-sou=
rce IDE can be downloaded for free.

The Arduino Project was developed out of an educational environment and is =
therefore great for newcomers to get things working quickly.

About the Workshop
The Arduino philosophy is based on making design rather then talking about =
it. It is a constant search for faster and more accurate ways to build bett=
er prototypes. We have explored many prototyping techniques and developed w=
ays of thinking with our hands.

This workshop has a strong practical component. At the end of the workshop =
participants will devellop a mini-project.

About Massimo Banzi (It)
Massimo Banzi is the co-founder of Arduino. Currently teaches Physical Inte=
raction Design at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea. Has worked on int=
eractive design projects for clients like Prada, Artemide and Adidas. He is=
the co-founder of the Interaction Design Lab (www.interactiondesign-lab.co=
