Pneuduino is a hardware platform for kids, students, artists, designers, researchers who are interested in controlling air flow and pressure for their projects. It is developed by Felix Heibeck, Jifei Ou at MIT Media Lab, Tangible Media Group.
The Pneuduino toolkit is currently used in workshops with high school or college students. While each workshop has a different focus, they all introduce concepts of air as actuator and sensor as well as different fabrication methods to create transforming artifacts.
Air is one the most abundant resources on earth. By adding computation ability to air, we can create new types of materials that enable us to design robots that are soft, furniture that is adaptive, clothing that is intelligent and art pieces that are breathing.
