Electronics for Costumers: from Zero to Arduino

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Lights! Noise! Motion! Where to start? This how-to panel assumes no prior experience. Starting from core electronic concepts, we'll avoid common novice mistakes and explore topics especially relevant to costuming. Soldering essentials, tool selection, use and safety. Resources. Demonstrations of fun glowy things like LEDs and EL wire. Giveaways! And what’s this "Arduino" thing all about?
