For those of you in the Seattle area, Jason Kelly Johnson of Future Cities Lab in San Francisco will be at the University of Washington for a lunch-time lecture to demo Firefly and show recent projects produced by his lab. Firefly is a software bridge between Grasshopper and the Arduino micro-controller, the internet and a number of other Human Interface devices. It allows near real-time data flow between the 3D digital and physical worlds, and can read/write data to/from internet feeds, remote sensors, connect with machine vision protocols, etc. We have been toying around with Firefly here at LMN and having a lot of fun. Jason Kelly Johnson’s introduction should serve as a great overview of the software and where it’s going.
Date/Time: March 11th, 2011, 12:30 – 1:30 pm.
Free and open to the public. Seats limited: RSVP required. For more info, see the McNeel event site.
Location: University of Washington, College of Build Environments, Gould Hall, Room 208J.
