Arduino Lock Box Workshop

  Codasign and the British Museum collaborated to build a workshop. The workshop was designed with the Citi-Money Gallery. The focus was on security. The workshop was divided into four sections. At the start, we took them to the exhibit and discussed the evolution of security. The exhibition ranges from lock boxes to modern digital […]



Etch-a-Sketch Ardunio/Processing Workshop

  For the second year, Codasign and Lycée Eugène Livet collaborated on an Etch-a-Sketch workshop for Livet’s student visit to London. The workshop is not only fun but relevant for the French students. André Cassagnes of France invented the Etch-a-Sketch. In the workshop, I take the 25+ students through a set of lessons where they learn […]

V&A Circuit Building Workshop

Codasign and V&A Museum collaborated on producing a circuit building workshop for their Digital Futures Programme. The workshop introduced circuit building to novices. I started with basics using graphite to make circuits. Then we build circuits using a 555 timer chip. The 555 Timer provides a means to create control in a circuit using components […]



Electric Poster Workshop

  Codasign and King’s College collaborated to host an Electric Poster workshop for 30+ visting Chinese students. The students are studying various areas in art and illustration. The workshop was broken into two sections. In the first section, I introduced circuit design, Arduino and using conductive ink. In the second section, the students used their new […]

FutureHeads Camp Week

Technology Will Save Us was tapped to provide circuit building workshops for FutureHeads Camp. As a TWSU expert, I provided two days of activities for the campers aged between 8 – 12 years old. We started with the DIY Electro Dough Kit. It is a fun way to for learning the basics of circuit design. The […]



Our Telematic Dinner Party Study in Eat Cook Grow from MIT Press

Rob Comber and I co-author chapter 4: Not Sharing Sushi: Exploring Social Presence and Connectedness at the Telematic Dinner Party (TDP). This chapter details the telematic dinner experiments we ran in the summer of 2011. The focus is on the TDP where the participants had sushi for their cuisine. It was the was the least […]

Capacitive Sensing Workshop

  We ran a half-day workshop that introduced how to create a capacitive sensor with Bare Conductive Ink and Arduino. The attendees were all new to Arduino. The workshop started with a quick refresher on circuit building. The next step was building circuits with potentiometer and light resistors and using the serial write/read of Arduino. The attendees […]


GoodGym Participatory Design Research

The central theme of our research project is to bolster older people’s confidence in engaging with digital technologies through a meaningful integration into their lives. We are working with a local London, UK running club whose members regularly visit isolated older people in their neighborhoods: checking on their well-being, encouraging social interaction, delivering newspapers and […]



Arduino workshop with Lycée Eugène Livet

  The students of the Lycée Eugene Livet School, Nantes, France came for the second time to Space Studios as part of their annual London trip. Codasign designed a workshop for the students that combined Processing and Arduino. The school has a technology program that includes teaching Processing and Arduino. The students were a mix of experienced […]
