Cigar Box MicroProcessing Suite
(powered by Arduino) (by: Brent Gillespie)
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer. For the 12th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME 2012), we created a workshop in which participants used the Arduino interface to quickly develop novel and original means of creating music. Some of these entries are presented here!
