Arduino: creation is child’s play
Brilliant 20 minute documentary from WIRED Italy on the open-source microcontroller which, thanks to simplifying the coding process, has enabled makers to create experimental artistic hardware.
Arduino, Its co-creator Massimo Banzi and all the other users that adopted this technology are the perfect example of a small thing that manages to thrive and spread all over the world, against all odds.
What is Arduino? What is its purpose? Who can benefit from it? Why was it so successful? We tried to answer all these questions through the stories of a bunch of great people, from all over Italy, who committed their talent and their passion to this project.
We will also look at the future: what are the frontiers of its use? First of all, 3D printing, which with its fast development based on the “open source hardware” concept, launched by Arduino, seems to border into sci-fi with its applications.
