Toy Hacking

Workshop by Selby Gildemacher (NL), James Bryan Graves (US) and Anja Groten (D).

On the very first day of the Summer Academy the participants warmed up and got to know each other by deconstructing remote controlled toy cars. The radio signals broadcasted via soldered versions of the toy's handheld controllers. Toy cars were modified with attached drawing tools using duct tape, pens, pencils, glue,...

In the afternoon we investigated how to use the internet as driving force for our toy-car-drawing-tools. Arduino code by Heerko van der Kooij and modified by the participants with the assistance of workshop leaders Anja, James and Selby.
