Your imagination + Arduino = Anything

Here's Massimo Banzi's TED talk on Arduinos. It's a wonderful talk for anyone who has an imagination and a desire to do cool things with technology.

Some of the projects he mentions are:

  • An RFID-powered cat feeder to make sure Fido doesn't eat Felix's food.
  • A quadcopter powered by Arduino
  • A TV that mutes itself when Kim Kardasian comes on.
  • New musical instruments
  • A glove that interprets sign-language and prints the message the signer is signing.
  • A PS3 interface that allows children with limited movement to play games
  • Plants that tweet, and even...
  • A chair that tweet when someone farts.

"Massimo Banzi helped invent the Arduino, a tiny, easy-to-use open-source microcontroller that's inspired thousands of people around the world to make the coolest things they can imagine -- from toys to satellite gear. Because, as he says, "You don't need anyone's permission to make something great." "
