Prototyping for IoT with Arduino

Building IoT Prototypes with Arduino


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

The intersection of physical and digital products is exploding with opportunities, and designers today are expected to think beyond the screen to build rich experiences. One way to achieve this is by creating prototypes with both physical and digital interactions.
This workshop will introduce designers to prototyping for the Internet of Things (IoT) using Arduino, an open-source electronics platform. Kathryn will walk through examples of multi-modal prototyping from low to high fidelity, sharing her physical examples in person and digging into the research insights discovered through testing them. Attendees will then get their hands dirty by building their own circuit, with provided Arduinos, and learn just how easy it is to create interesting interactions with a few lines of code.
Please make sure to bring your laptop and a way to plug in a USB cable (dongle!) Visit this Google Drive: and follow the instructions in the Read Me Doc. You'll download the arduino software and example code, so that you're ready to go when you arrive!
