The Sketching in Hardware 2011 presentations are now available. This is one of the events were invited to in the past but scheduling never allowed us to go!
The sixth annual summit on the design and use of physical computing toolkits. Attendance by invitation only. Presentations by every attendee. Sketching is a three-day meeting to discuss tools for physical computing prototyping: how to make them, how to make them better, how to use them, and how to teach with them.
The theme for 2011 is Invention and Improvement. Benjamin Franklin clearly saw that the trajectory of technology was not just toward incremental solutions to known problems, but in creating opportunities that had not been imagined. He saw that inventions build on each other, and work together to spawn new ideas. This years’ meeting will look at how invention and improvement play off each other, where they conflict, and how electronics as a creative medium has progressed since last year.
Although there isn’t video for each talk, there are many presentations worth checking out that will still give you a good idea of what the talk(s) were about. The SparkFun “Where transparency ends” is really interesting and so is the one from Bildr – but they’re all worth downloading and reviewing!
