Public talk - open to all citizens

Dr. Massimo Banzi, Arduino, room D101, June 8th, 17:30 

A lecture with Massimo Banzi: Arduino, open-sourcing imagination

In his talk, Massimo will outline the history of Arduino: over the years, Arduino has been the brain of thousand projects, from students assignments to industry applications, from connected devices to consumer products. However, the great expectations towards IoT have been confused and the process of designing IoT products is still ‘struggling for meaning’, it still needs to find a way to become part of people’s everyday life. Referring to its ‘Manifesto for Connected Objects’, Massimo will argue that this process should be ‘good, clean and fair’: connected devices should be based on open-source, non-disposable, accessible and human-centered. At the end of talk, Massimo will introduce some of the latest Arduino projects, focusing on the opportunities offered by the platform in the development of IoT tools.


Massimo Banzi is the co-founder of the Arduino project. He is an Interaction Designer, Educator and Open Source Hardware advocate. He has worked as a consultant for clients such as: Prada, Artemide, Persol, Whirlpool, V&A Museum and Adidas.

Massimo started the first FabLab in Italy which led to the creation of Officine Arduino, a FabLab/Makerspace based in Torino.

He spent 4 years at the Interaction Design Institue Ivrea as Associate Professor. Massimo has taught workshops and has been a guest speaker at institutions allover the world.

Before joining IDII he was CTO for the Seat Ventures incubator. He spent many years working as a software architect,both in Milan and London, on projects for clients like Italia Online, Sapient, Labour Party, BT, MCI WorldCom, SmithKlineBeecham, Storagetek, BSkyB and boo.com.

Massimo is also the author of “Getting Started with Arduino” published by O’Reilly. He is a regular contributor to the italian edition of Wired Magazine and Che Futuro, an online magazine about innovation.

He currently teaches Interaction Design at SUPSI Lugano in the south of Switzerland and is a visiting professor at CIID in Copenhagen.

Prototyping the internet of things

This workshop introduces the creation of connected devices to people with no background in electronics or software development.

We’re going to be building quick prototypes of connected devices using a system of modular sensors, wifi boards, bluetooth boards and a mobile app.

Leveraging on the simplicity of Arduino and the Blynk mobile development tool participants will create mobile interfaces to the connected devices they will build with an array of sensors made available to them.

The workshop will start by introducing the fundamentals of how connected devices, sensors and actuators work. We’ll show examples of the properties of major sensors and actuators coupled with Arduino and the Blynk interface.

Afterwards participants will be assisted in the creation of quick prototypes of any device they have in mind.

The workshop will close with a reflection on the issues and opportunities encountered while building the prototypes.
