Don Speaks at SchipulCon on Arduino and Processing
Using Processing and Arduino as examples, he demonstrated that anyone can quickly mock up beautiful visuals and interact with hardware–all you need is a computer and 5 minutes. He also demonstrated a few more complex applications of Arduino in both neuroscience and music that can be accomplished with a little more time. Specifically, he showcased his custom Arduino electronic drum set, which he built from scratch.
Finally, Don discussed some of the social implications that easy-to-access, open-source platforms have had, and how it has made effecting positive change easier than ever.
