Tuned Stairs is the introductory installation for the Fabrica exhibition at Center Pompidou on 6 October - 13 November 2006. As visitors walk down the stairs leading to the exhibition, their footsteps activate a musical sound. The installation refocuses the attention of the visitor onto their footfalls - allowing them the opportunity to compose their timing, movement, and the resulting melody.
a chinese student in mechanical engineering was the first person ever including Arduino as part of the logics of a robot. His multipod slides slowly over the floor as an insect.

"Control Freaks are devices that attach to everyday objects, turning them into interactive game play objects. When the Control Freak attaches to a host object, its movement, vibration or sound, can be translated into control functionality for a game. The situation, location and behavior of the host, are all enablers for opportunistic play experience. The Control Freak device therefore enables any object in any situation to become the focus of play adventure."
Haiyan used normal Arduino boards, the Arduino prototyping board, and custom PCBs with ATmega8s and the Arduino software to read an accelerometer and send the data to a computer running Flash games.
"Sonic Graffiti addresses music experiences for both creators and audiences. A system of devices enables graffiti artists to create and geo-tag music in the urban space with real spray cans. For general audiences it provides a listening experience giving a sense of connection with the environment."
Chia-Ying used an Arduino board to read an accelerometer and buttons mounted to the spray cans. The data was used to control the playback of sound samples on the computer.
"OpenBuilder is a project that investigates the role open source technologies can play in transforming under developed economies with the use of social projects. This report touches upon various trends, strategies and discuses these issues through 4 distinctive design projects. The design projects investigate the various roles open source technologies can play, as a service, a product and process facilitator."
Vinay used Arduino in his haptic web brower prototype, in which a knob mounted to a motor from a toy car, using a mouse as a cheap encoder, provided tactile navigation through web pages. It also appeared in some of his prototypes of a joystick-based motor controller for a wheelchair.
