Learning Arduino /pt.1
I’ve wanted to tinker with an microcontroller since I first heard of it during my studies back in the days, but I was always missing a specific idea I would consider worth pursuing. Up to now. Inspired by the Bachelor Thesis from my colleague Tobias Wolf I finally got some rough ideas and a potential use case I want to test out.
I love the idea to experiment with electrophysiological data. For one thing, I’ve never done anything with this type of data before and secondly, I really dig the idea to use such an extremely raw and natural input together with some tech for something ‘artistic’, so I gathered all the necessary hardware I need to start crafting. At its core:
- an Arduino Uno Rev.3
- an Elegoo Electronic Fun Kit I bought for the Breadboard, the cables, the LEDs and all the other bits
- an Olimex Shield-EKG-EMG to convert incoming electrophysiological signals for the Arduino
- a basic EKG-EMG-cable with some matching GEL electrodes to pick up electrophysiological signals
That’s it for the kick-off already. I’ll keep you updated on my progress, more details on what I have planned down the road with my Arduino will probably follow soon.
