Arduino’s David Cuartielles’ exhibition at Storm

Platform-things: from embedded to embodied

David Cuartielles, researcher at Malmö University and co-founder of Arduino, welcomes you to the exhibition “Platform-things”. The exhibition will take you on a 15 year long journey about how Arduino has been transformed into interactive technology all around the world. 

Before Arduino entered the stage, programmable circuit boards were so expensive that an entire class had to share one. Arduino made the technology accessible for anyone that works with an interactive project and wants to create new technology – it doesn’t cost more than a text book. And with community work all over the world, it has been proved – it really is for everyone. Read more about Arduino here 

In which way will we make society better if we are not willing to share what we know with others? – Cuartielles

At the innovation hub Storm Malmö University we invite you to explore the exhibition, visit our Arduino Cinema with interactive and creative examples from all around the world. Why not let students from Malmö University Interaction Design programme introduce you to the Art of Prototyping with Microcontrollers?

The good thing about Arduino is that it enables people to become creators of new technology – Cuartielles

The exhibition revisits some of the projects presented in Cuartielles’ dissertation “Platform Design: Creating Meaningful Toolboxes When People Meet.” With photographs and reflections it explores a 15 years long timeline made of hardware prototypes, products, software, and thousands of hours of interaction with end users. The exhibition is built using the Arduino platform as an example of how a modular platform can result in the creation of other tools and systems.
