Interactive Prototypes - FireFly at Rhino-DAY - Guadalajara, Mexico

Date: 4/3/2014 [ April 3, 2014 ] Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Cost: US $95

Course Description: Drag and Drop programing

Using Grasshopper’s visual programming interface, Firefly gives you the ability to create interactive programs and devices by manipulating elements graphically rather than by specifying them textually. It attempts to bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds by simplifying the prototyping process for interactive objects. It combines a specialized set of components with a novel communication protocol (calledtheFireflyFirmata,orFirmware) which together enable real-time feedback between hardware devices such as the well-known Arduino microcontroller and the Rhino / Grasshopper modeling environment. All this happens instantly - so there’s no compiling. Your program runs as you build it, making development and prototyping an extremely rapid process.

Optional: Arduino/FireFLY electronics kit: [ Price 129.00 US$ ]
