Event Description

Firefly is an exciting Grasshopper plugin enabling designers to connect the digital and physical worlds using the Arduino microcontroller. It allows near real-time data flow between Grasshopper and a variety of hardware devices. Through lectures and demonstrations, participants will learn how to sense various data sources (environmental, behavioral, web-based) and use the information to create interactive prototypes controlling actuators including servo motors and LED lights.

This workshop is suitable for those interested in interactive environments, design robotics and fabrication, and implementation of the Internet of Things.

Topics Covered

  • What is Firefly? What is Arduino?
  • How to navigate the user interface.
  • How to sense data and accurately scale (or remap) values to work with a specific design problem.
  • How to wire and power your prototype correctly.
  • An overview of sensors and actuators available and where to purchase them.
  • How to use Twitter data to control your design.

About the Instructors
Jason King & Biayna Bogosian have nearly two decades of combined experience in architecture, design technology, and teaching. We strive to make our workshops fun and informative, helping participants integrate new design technologies into their workflows.
