Workshop at Kunsthochschule Halle with Steffen Klaue / class Quadrature
For the Interim professor-ship of Quadrature at Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein in Halle (DE) I developped with Steffen Klaue a workshop revolving around the introduction into Sensors and Actuators powered by a 5V Battery and driven by an Arduino. The idea besides introducing the students into the matter was to send a Helium Balloon into the stratosphere to conduct experiments.
In the following images you will see the results of the brainstorming and the developments of the ideas by the product-design students. The balloon was let go on a sunny day and wasn't retrieved until a motorized hunt after a frozen GPS module.
Here some more images of the inside of the package ready to be sent into the stratosphere:
