Create immersive interactive experiences. Combine Arduino with TouchDesigner, a powerful node based programming environment with endless possibilities for interactive installation, marketing activations, generative art, multimedia performance, and more! In this course you will learn very basic electronics, introductory Arduino skills, and the fundamental concepts of interaction using sensors and inputs to control video in TouchDesigner.

By the end of this workshop series you will be able to:

  • Create Arduino based electronic prototypes
  • Control video in TouchDesigner with sensors and your own custom hardware interfaces
  • Utilize TouchDesigner to map software interactions to physical electronic systems
  • Apply interaction design concepts for developing installations and brand activations

Series Study Topics

  • TouchDesigner to control Digital and PWM output
  • Switches and Digital inputs mapped to states in TouchDesigner
  • Analog sensors, smoothing data and creating meaningful interactions
  • Strengths, weaknesses and limitations of hardware and software.
