On April 1st,2017 the day in which our phones were filled with April Fools Day messages
for reasons unknown, was also marked by the birthday of Arduino. Free
Software Movement of Karnataka (FSMK), which abides by the
philosophies of Arduino celebrated the Arduino day in it’s Bengaluru
office with a motive to encourage the general public to be a part of
Arduino community and to encourage the maker culture. Visitors were
belonging to diverse groups ranging from smart under 10 kids,
engineers, students, home makers.

Volunteers had set-up ‘Show and Tell’ stands where the following prototypes
were showcased

  • GPS tracker
    developed by Anup Pravin

  • Home Automation System
    developed by Rushmi & Madhu, UVCE

  • Wireless Navigation System for Visually challenged
    developed by Nithya,Ranjitha, Reshma & Ponnamma, AMC college of engineering

  • Bluetooth enabled bot controlled by smart phone
    developed by Divya & Anup Pravin along with Amigo comunity centre students

Anup Pravin, one of Arduino Uno WiFi maker had planned a DIY session for
the students of community center. Students actively participated in the activity
and developed a confidence in them that they can also be a part of DIY
community. Mrs.Turia, homemaker was fascinated by the students work
and also was interested in installing the Home Automation system
developed by students in her kitchen. She was also happy to introduce
the DIY culture to her son who was under-10.

PS:For all those who don’t know Arduino is the first project that democratized
the world of electronics to all the communities that exists on this world
ranging from artist to scientists.
