Shielded: extend your Arduino

Ellentriek meets Code, Arts & Crafts

With an Arduino you can collect a lot of sensor data, from smelling gasses to measuring temperature or light and lots more. But how do you save these data? How do you actuate the outside world, transfer bits and bytes online, without using a computer?

In order to activate motors, to connect to a network, to make an autonomous interactive sound installations, you need chips and components on top of your microcontroller.

These usually come in the form of a shield that slides onto your Arduino. During this Ellentriek meets Code, Arts and Crafts weekend we'll review several of these "shields" in detail. We will scrutinize these shields and look at the possiblities to make them ourselves.

With extra brainpower of Mr Stock from Rotterdam & Stephane Noel!
