In Fall 2010 a collaborative class was offered by Erik Brunvand (School of Computing) and Paul Stout (Department of Art and Art History) at the University of Utah called Embedded Systems and Kinetic Art. In this class teams of computer engineers and artists worked together to build kinetic sculptures. In February 2011 we had a gallery show in the Gittins Gallery on the University of Utah campus. This show was titled “Intersectio” (latin for “the intersection of”). This video is from that gallery installation.
It’s great to see more and more art schools incorporating kinetics and interactive design into their curricula. Nice work and congrats to Erik, Paul and their students!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
