This is an excellent workshop for both beginners to Grasshopper and Firefly as well as those who already have experience with the plugins (and/or have taken our previous workshops). The first day of lecture will be spent on learning, reviewing, and depending on the your level of experience, expanding programming skills to more sophisticated models. Using materials provided by us and our laser cutter, the second day will be spent building an interactive prototype.
Firefly is an exciting Grasshopper plugin enabling designers to connect the digital and physical worlds using the Arduino microcontroller. It allows near real-time data flow between Grasshopper and a variety of hardware devices. Through lectures and demonstrations, participants will learn how to sense various data sources (environmental, behavioral, web-based) and use the information to create interactive prototypes controlling actuators including servo motors and LED lights.
SAVE THE DATE: On October 6 we will host a reception in the studio to showcase and celebrate the prototype created in the Interactive Aggregates workshop. All are welcome, food and drink will be served.
