Lead by Brian Solon (IE) and Emma Wade (IE) for the Data Group part of ISEA09.

Workshop Description:
Make floating light sculptures that react to sound. An introduction to Arduino andProcessing with some good old-fashioned hack-and-do fun.

Participants will add LEDs to helium balloons and learn how to control them using the Arduino platform together with the Processing programming environment to create an interactive light sculpture that responds to sound and music.

Partly inspired by Electric Moons and LED Throwies.

No electronics or programming skills required. Participants should however bring their own laptops (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux). The Hack-duino workshop will invite participants to discover Arduino. Workshop open to ALL. No technical skills required.
