Custom electronics design & fabrication

The installation uses 16 independant electroluminescent wires each of them connected to custom electronics for the vibration sensing, light animation control and wireless comunication. A rechargeable Lithium-ion 12v battery attached to each wire gives us a complete freedom in the organisation of the wires in the space.

An Open Source toolchain

Almost all the toolchain used to build Portée/ is Open Source. We used Fritzing to design the circuit and PCB, OpenScad to design the Box Enclosure and Arduino to program the ATTiny85 Firmware.
More detailed informations on the toolchain, all the components used and links to the source-code of every files used in the project are available in this document.
