Abstract:

  • W&T LAB tries to figure how to lower the psychological barrier of beginners to learn/use/enjoy the technologies. MOM (board) is body-shaped board based on ATtiny85 that is a microcontroller chip. Workshop is divided into two parts: the tutorial of MOM and the application of MOM. Participants assemble MOM and learn how to use MOM. And then they design their own product with MOM and prepared materials.

    W&T LAB tries to figure how to lower the psychological barrier of beginners to learn/use/enjoy the technologies. MOM (board) is body-shaped board based on ATtiny85 that is a microcontroller chip. Recently many people learned of a micro-controller specially Arduino, but still is not easy to understand for person who is not familiar with technologies. MOM is designed as a body, so it is easy to understand the concept of pins and each pin’s functions. We don’t normally use all pins of micro-controller and sometimes feel confused what to do with those pins. As a simplified version of micro-controller board, MOM can give basic information on micro-controller. Through assembling it, you can understand how to build a micro-controller circuit. Kids love its unique design that can stimulate them to learn physical computing. MOM has sew-able pads that can be used for e-textiles. E-textile is a good way to appeal women and kid who are interested in making and learning technologies. MOM is a micro- controller board working with 3v and it can connect to diverse inputs and outputs like sensors, speaker and switch that also working with 3v. MOM is programmable and Arduino compatible so you can program and upload it to MOM with Arduino IDE. You can make interesting outputs with MOM such as wearable accessories, tools, toys, musical instruments and craftworks. Workshop is divided into two parts: the tutorial of MOM and the application of MOM. Participants assemble MOM and learn how to use MOM. And then they design their own product with MOM and prepared materials.
