Creating More Makers at Isobar New York

workshop

Last Friday afternoon members of the Isobar team in NYC got together to learn about the “Maker Movement” and to experiment and play with Arduino, a tiny computer that makes it easier for mere mortals to create hardware prototypes.

The Arduino platform is the prototyping tool of choice for many of the entrepreneurs driving the Internet of Things and as such provided a perfect subject for the team to explore in advance of an internal Hackathon next week. The Hackathon will focus on how we can use the emerging connectivity of seemingly everything from dog collars to toilets seats to drive innovative solutions for people!

The promise of nerdy Friday fun drew a fantastic crowd and participants who arrived electrical novices and left with knowledge of how to create a circuit with a breadboard and how to use the Arduino’s simple software language to take their creation to the next level. By the end of the workshop each small team had managed to create a light that glowed brighter as the ambient light around it decreased.

While we won’t be in-sourcing our office’s electrical work just yet, we’re excited about what the team will come up with now they are armed with some new skills!
