What are people in Worthing making and doing with digital tech?
Between 18 and 30 January 2020 we will be asking this question in the Space to Make project at Colonnade House.
Alongside the exciting plans to expand our current building into a creative digital hub with ultrafast broadband, we are exploring the potential for setting up a makerspace for Worthing.
We have already been working with creatives based at Colonnade House and with people working with digital tech in the wider community in Worthing and they will be sharing some of their projects at practical open 'Work in Progress' sessions at Colonnade House including:
· Ginny from Persistent Peril turning a light on with a Photon (a tiny Wi-Fi internet of things device enabling remote connectivity and control)
· Adam from As Described taking up the challenge as an artist and non-coder of building an AI object-recognition system
· Martin from Freedom Power Chairs using micro electronics and 3D printing to make adaptations for mobility scooters
· Sussex Printmakers exploring how a laser cutter can be used as a tool for printmaking
· John from Worthing Digital looking at how the Amazon Alexa voice assistant works and also exploring how you can make your own Alexa Skill
· Arun Singh from The Peer Group looking at Augmented Reality - the state of play and what's coming next.
· Transition Town Worthing exploring how they can use micro controllers to create responsive automatic irrigation systems
