Biologically Inspired Multi-Processor
Materials Fee $10
Day/Time: Saturday, April 22 11:00 AM (90 minutes)
Location: Workshop PavilionBuild a circuit that uses preprogrammed (and reprogrammable) microcontrollers to signal human-cell-style, using concentrations, not logic. We provide the chips, you bring your own socket board, hookup wire, and batteries. The application we build will connect sensors (knob or light) to control sound (Morse code pitch and tempo) and will include an extra computer programmed as a "scope" to watch the others work.

I'm an EE and CS graduate who has been borrowing from the emerging field of systems biology for years. My favorite style of design is to build new things out of old parts by connecting them in unexpected ways. I am the inventor of Wiki, where I "misused" the web's forms capability to make a new kind of social experience.
