ArduinoD14

It’s been a couple of weeks since we celebrated with all of you the beginning of our tenth year. We’ve been receiving videos and pictures and want to share them in this post (Explore the tagboard of #ArduinoD14).

The first Arduino Day around the World was a huge success largely due to the dedication of each of the communities joining the party! We had more than 240 community events sharing with us this moment of celebration and we sincerely appreciate the efforts and thank you again for the support within the Arduino Open Source Community!

Once more we realised the importance of community by saying “Arduino is you.” Hardware, software, tutorials, and logistics aside, people enjoying time with Arduino are exemplary of the folks who make it fulfilling for us to continue with this adventure. Thank you!

Here’s some awesome visual reports we received:

    • Antonius was at ITP in New York together with Massimo Banzi and Tom Igoe and made this video:
    • David Cuartielles featured in this video from Arduino Day Zaragoza:
    • Richard from Wevolver in Amsterdam organised a Show and Tell in collaboration with Ifabrica:

DIY IWBs for Officine Arduino 2nd Birthday

via Arduino Blog

Officine Arduino Party

Arduino has a little (yet effective) bit in Turin, and that’s Officine Arduino. We opened this place two years ago to offer a shelter to the Arduinians in northern Italy and host a makerspace, for their creations. We witnessed (and joined) the foundation of the Torino Fablab, an association offering the very same machines to anybody interested about the maker movement in Turin. On top of that, the all ardu-maker-fab-co-creative space is hosted in Toolbox Coworking.

It’s tough to weight all the efforts and failures and successes we reached in these two years. We’ve seen the birth of Verkstad Arduino, the Swedish Arduino Office which is sharing the same principles we’ve been looking for in conceiving this place: mixing the company approach and the horizontal, informal one of makerspaces and coworking spaces (aka collaboration spaces).

I love the way Arduino Team dealt with the growing of the project: create different little places rather than having a huge one.

Wonderful Lasercut

On top of that, Officine Arduino wouldn’t have been so without the help of Smartprojects (one of the main producers of Arduino). A selfless and generous helping hand towards us and towards italian makers in general. They lended us their lasercutter for 2 years, now that we are setted up they are going to lend the very same lasercut to another newborn fablab! This is the picture I took when I broght the lasercut back last week.

Interactive Whiteboard

Last year we celebrated our birthday with Josef Prusa and the building of ten reprap 3d printers. This year we want to dedicate our birthday to education, so we are going to host and build Interactive digital writeboards during the week end, following the Wiildos opensource project, with Pietro Pilolli (project host with Matteo Ruffoni e Massimo Bosetti).

Friday is important for yet another reason: Toolbox is going to host the press conference of the newborn italian maker association, inwhich Massimo plays the role of president: Make in Italy Cdb Onlus. If you are a journalist or maker you can enroll here to join the press conference.

tl;dr: we are partying this upcoming friday, if you pass by let us knowFB Event. Interested in building your own Interactive Open Source Digital Writeboard? Join the Make In Italy Cdb Onlus Press conference here.

 

Ooh, BETTy (look, it’s Sunday morning, it’s the best I can do)

via Raspberry Pi

The RPF Education Team is just back from BETT, the education technology show, and it was very good indeed. I love BETT: you get to talk to lots of interesting people about stuff that you’re passionate about; play with the Raspberry Pi and pretend that it’s work; see all the latest education tech; and generally show off. (At the same time it’s also an extraordinarily gruelling four days of demos, talks, meetings, interviews and PR. I feel like I’ve spent the last week being simultaneously coddled with a tickling stick and beaten with a sock full of oranges.)

The show got off to a great start for us when Education Secretary Michael Gove called Raspberry Pi a “brilliant British tech business” in his opening keynote and highlighted the MOOC that we’ve helped create with OCR and Cambridge University Press. It was also surprising and gratifying to see Raspberry Pis on so many stands and in products around the show. Anyway, it’s Sunday so less writing and more pictures are in order:

The Raspberry Pi Foundation Education Team. From left: Dave Honess, Carrie Anne Philbin, Clive Beale and Ben Nuttall

Dave doing technical stuff that I don’t understand.

 

Carrie Anne doing her funky Sonic Pi thing. Or a rabbit puppet show.

Ben gets personal with a Raspberry Pi camera

Clive talks mainly with his hands

The graffiti at BETT is of a very high quality

No one would listen to me when I told them that the command to invert the picture was ‘rm -rf *’

Teaching the world how to be awesome. Go Team Pi!

Wearing the Pi with pride

Showing off our new animation ‘What is a Raspberry Pi?’

Finally, a big thanks to:

  • everyone who came to talk to us and to watch the demos and seminars;
  • OCR for hosting us;
  • Dave, Ben and Carrie Anne, the RPF Education Team. Let’s do it again next year :)

Digital innovation for social change: Arduino is in the first 100!

via Arduino Blog

NominetTrust100
We are really excited  to be included in the 2013 Nominet Trust 100 which celebrates inspiring examples of ventures from around the world that are using tech to accelerate social change.

The Nominet Trust 100 Steering Group, this year included; Lord Jim Knight (a consultant specialising in the use of technology in education and employment), Rory Cellan-Jones (Technology Journalist for the BBC), Madhav Chavan (a leading Indian educator, social activist and social entrepreneur) and Jeremy Heimans (Founder and CEO of Purpose).

The list has been launched with a feature by Charlie Leadbeater in the Financial Times weekend, here’s an extract from the article:

From finding lost children in China, to sharing experiences of illness, to using ‘unsmart’ phones to fight corruption – the Nominet Trust has spotlighted 100 groundbreaking applications of digital technology.

At Nominet Trust, one of the UK’s leading funders of social technology ventures, we wanted to find out how these digital technologies could help solve big social challenges. We believe such efforts, if implemented effectively, can make a tangible difference to people’s lives, especially in the developing world where there are severe shortages of doctors and teachers, hospitals and schools, and traditional models of providing essential services do not work.
To assess the state of social innovation, we launched the Nominet Trust 100, a project to find and recognise the most inspiring applications of digital technology for social good. From a long list of more than 400, identified by our own research and public nominations, a steering group of experts and opinion formers, led by Annika Small, the trust’s chief executive, has come up with the top 100 projects.
We have taken an optimistic yet pragmatic approach. In selecting our examples, we were looking for three things: inspiring new solutions to difficult problems; impact, at a scale affecting millions of people; and inspiration that could provide an idea or model that others might follow or emulate.
