SESSION 2 (10:00-12:00) WORKSHOP PHABLABS4.0

Build your own mood lamp

During an exclusive PHABLABS4.0 workshop in the morning, you will adapt the colors of your own RGB lamp wirelessly by your smartphone, according to your mood.

Its electronic circuit is based on the Adruino-like platform, which has WLAN capability and is set up as an Access Point (AP). With several inputs and outputs of the programmable microcontroller you can mix the Red, Green and Blue LEDs.  To assemble the photonics components – lenses and high power LEDs – in a tailored wooden box, you can practice your laser-cutting skills.

With the provided code, you will be able to design and prototype your own wireless future applications.

This workshop is given by Tine Depauw, PHABLABS4.0

SESSION 6 (13:45-14:45) WORKSHOP LASER LIGHT

Time to put on safety glasses!

During this in-depth workshop you can experiment with lasers. Get introduced to different types of lasers and their fascinating beam characteristics to understand how light reacts in different conditions. You can test different lenses and filters during this lab session, and  focus your laser beam as precisely as possible to target the right spot.

This workshop is given by Andrea Ceglia, Postdoc Researcher B-PHOT
