Learn how to use RFID technology to hack and make a musical friend out of your favourite stuffed toy! We’ll be using RFID, Arduinos, and fluffy toys*. Taught by interaction designer Artemis Papageorgiou.
When: 22 January 2011, 11:00am – 5:00pm
Where: Space Studios, 129‐131 Mare Street, London E8 3RH
Level: Low Intermediate – you will need to be somewhat familiar with Arduino. Essentially, this class will not cover the basics on how to set up an Arduino. We will learn to write code for RFID modules.
Materials: We will be using a combination of RFID tags, readers, Arduinos and toys. MzTEK is happy to lend all necessary materials (minus the toy*) on the day of the workshop, with the option to purchase them after. Or, you can pre-order a kit through us without the arduino is £42, and with the arduino board is £65. You must pre-order by January 13 2011 via email.
To Register: The course costs £23 / student (does not include materials). This course is open only to women.
Our classes fill up quickly due to demand, so be sure to register as soon as possible.
