Massimo Banzi: Opensourcing Imagination
Interaction designer Massimo Banzi helped invent the Arduino, a tiny, easy-to-use open-source microcontroller that has inspired people around the world to make the coolest things they can imagine. With a variety of sensors, the Arduino is versatile and easy to use for projects as diverse as an exhibit on brains at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, to a DIY kit that sends a Tweet when your houseplant needs water. Massimo has consulted for Prada, Artemide, Persol, Whirlpool, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Adidas. He is also the author of Getting Started with Arduino and is a regular contributor to the Italian edition of Wired Magazine and the online innovation magazine Che Futuro. Massimo currently teaches Interaction Design at SUPSI Lugano in Switzerland and is a visiting professor at CIID in Copenhagen.
