Showing Off DIY Arduino Art

The little microcontroller can power all sorts of projects


This past Saturday, I went to NYC Resistor's "Art, Design, and the Arduino Microcontoller: a lineage" gallery party. Curated by Alicia Gibb, the show was a loving tribute to the device. The show had everything from early Arduino prototypes to modern projects made with the microcontroller.  Highlights included toy cars hacked to paint like Jackson Pollock, a coffee table that cleans itself, and LED jackets that lit up as you moved.  Check out the video highlights below.
