Workshop at NYU Impact conference 2015 in which participants can remix each other music making prototypes. Each iteration of remixing will follow a different constraint. Inspired by the traditional Chinese whispers game and this post card player (http://uniform.net/work/projects/uniform-postcard-player/) project we would like to create a workshops where participants would create and remix each others musical boxes and cards. Each iteration will respect different constraints in regards to materials that could be used or number of modifications that could be made.
Making the DIY MICROSCOPE includes converting an ordinary webcam into a microscope. The webcam’s conversion can be quickly effected manually. The electronics remains unaltered, only the position of the lens is changed. A solid platform enables fixing and accurately focusing the tiny study objects. The objects are illuminated with a light-emitting diode (LED).

Light installations for DIY sensors and Twitter
This project was build in three stages. Each stage advances in difficulty so there is something for the novice as well as the more advanced.
Stage One: Use an Arduino to build an LED light that will change its color by sending a tweet!
Stage Two: Use a sensor of your choice to gather some data. For example, a moisture sensor that will report when water levels in a plant are getting dangerously low.
