My preferred part is the moment where Massimo Banzi explained the choice for openness, in relation to the […]

A Frankenscript practice

At this moment I am trying to make an interactive distance measuring exercise, a second version of “Do(n’t) stand so close to me” with a sonar, 4 leds and a waveshield working together with an arduino. As I’m not a coder (yet?) I rely heavily on tutorials and the generosity of other coders that decide […]
