Note on development and methodology:

The projects in (FAB)BOTS were done by master level students of the MAA program at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC). They were developed in the design studios tutored by Marta Malé-Alemany, in collaboration with Victor Viña. The seven projects were worked on over the course of five months and supported the work through tutorials in programming and building customized robotic devices using the open-source electronics prototyping platform Arduino, which is based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. Student teams were encouraged to benefit from and contribute to a large on-line community by sharing experiences with interactive projects or environments. The electronic and mechanical components of each fabrication and robotic device were produced at the Fab-Lab Bcn (IAAC).
