Our team is busy testing and implementing the Museduino in exhibit installations. In these last weeks of summer, we’re installing projects in Carlsbad, NM, developing circuits for the new nature center at Acadia National Park, and preparing for workshops at the Santa Fe Art Institute and at the ASTC conference in mid-October. We’re also pretty excited to install one of our pneumatic tube systems in our friend’s vacation rental, so you can send in orders for coffee and crepes!
Museduino will be implemented at Acadia National Park’s nature center. The Museduino set up will control an exhibit on marsh vs. shore life. A second exhibit on shorebirds will be controlled by Arduino. The exhibits will be open in the spring of 2016.
We are working with the Carlsbad Museum and Art Center on the “Little Carlsbad” model train exhibit. This project involves adding user-controlled vignettes throughout the installation. We’re working with museum volunteers to get this on board (a pun!) by early fall.
The Bradbury Science Museum at Los Alamos National Labs will use the Museduino system in an upcoming exhibit on the Dual-Axis Radiographic Hydrodynamic Test Facility (DARHT). Intriguing, right? More soon.
