Basic Concepts of Robotics and Physical Computing with Gabriella Levine
Monday, February 17 at 1:00pm Visible Futures Lab
132 West 21st Street, 7th Floor
Gabriella Levine, the VFL's current artist in residence, will lead a 1 hour discussion on basic techniques for designing things that move, and provide resources for code, tools, fabrication, and hardware. She will cover mechanical principles, Arduino libraries, DIY custom fabrication techniques, motors, gears, joints, as well as code snippets for translating motion from software into hardware.
This discussion is meant to be an overview, exposing beginners to methods and concepts that can be applied in simple ways to create mechanical motion that can be incorporated into Arduino projects, such as toys, kinetic sculptures, mechanical devices, or robotics.
