This seems even more interesting
http://www.mixedmedia.it/

unfortunately I wont be able to go...
if someone will go I will be asking you a lot of questions smiley
or you could report it for everyone on the wiki ;-)

sfortunatamente non ci potrò andare...
se qualcuno ci va sarebbe fantastico stilare un riassunto veloce per tutti sulla wiki ;-)
se in effetti risulta interessante

This can be interesting
I think they will be exhibiting only some web work...but this is the time for the italian interaction design scene to emerge

rapid prototyping for physical computing projects is exploding.
The trend is now clear...
there are a couple of "competitors" but for what I've seen so far Arduino is the best ;-)

compared to the others, Arduino is the best mix between:
low level allowing flexibility,
open source encouraging the masses
and simple enough to reach the designer "oh-my-god-I'm-afraid-of-scripts?" community
;-)

1- d.tools http://hci.stanford.edu/research/dtools/
a stanford project

2- sketch tools http://www.sketchtools.com
has an excellent resource page..and by the way...massimo, you are famous smiley-wink
you are listed as n° 2 in the resources>artist & designers list

let's make this post a collection of this kind of similar project...
we might all learn from other projects and manage maybe to merge or collaborate...
at the end we are all aiming (more or less) at the same thing.

ps. I intentionally omitted wiring http://wiring.org.co
just because for me Arduino is Wiring 2.0 ;-)

pps. an excellent discussion about this trend is:
"Sketching in Hardware" by Mike Kuniavsky -- presented at the recent
O'Reilly's Emerging Technology Conference

125  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Bar Sport / Atmega8 Asuro robot kit on: March 08, 2006, 09:27:25 pm
farnell is offering at a "special" price (41€)
a robot constructing kit based on the Atmega8

http://it.farnell.com/jsp/bespoke/bespoke1.jsp?bespokepage=farnell/it_IT/new_arrivals_content/arexx.jsp

the cool thing is that it has and Infrared programming interface, so that you don't need to connect it to the pc to programm it, and you can "wirelessly" command it too...can't wait to do that ;-)

I dont' know if this farnell offer is available in all countrys, but if you have an italian friend or a postal address in italy you can solve the problem.

I bought it, but my 5€ welder isn't enough for this :-) I need to buy a soldering station...
any good hints? any cheap but good soldering station you can suggest me?

happy robot building
