Massimo Banzi on open-sourcing imagination

I just got back from a presentation by Massimo Banzi, one of the inventors of the Arduino.

It was the last installment of the Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series sponsored by the U of M
School of Art & Design and it was fascinating.

He spoke to a packed house at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor on his work with Arduino and Interaction Design at SUPSI Lugano.

His talk should be on-line at at some point.

Inspirational stories, examples of Arduino in industry and the arts, and plenty of anecdotes on design interaction.

Invent, prototype, refine!
