Robin Baumgarten | LED Game Hardware Workshop

Experimental Hardware Game developer

Robin Baumgarten is a German Indie based in London, UK. After researching Artificial Intelligence in Games and working on mobile titles, he is now fully focused on creating playable interactive installations that straddle the divide of games and art, such as Line Wobbler and Wobble Garden.

On this workshop participants built tiny experimental hardware games that run on LED strips, using sensors of their choice! No previous hardware knowledge was required, but basic programming knowledge was helpful. Participants were using Python. There was request for laptop only, everything else was provided! We had lots of programmable LED strips, microcontrollers, buttons, dials, joysticks and other things.
