title Funken - Serial Protocol Toolkit for Interactive Prototyping

summary In order to offer a novel approach towards the development of interactive projects in architecture and design, as well as their tight integration in existing CAAD toolchains, this paper presents Funken, an open-source toolkit that handles serial communication for microcontrollers, aimed at simplifying the integration process between CAAD tools and interactive devices, and allowing fast implementation of human-readable user-specific communication protocols on the fly. Funken's details and implementation are presented, as well as custom-developed interfaces to Grasshopper, NodeJS and Processing. Funken is designed for building systems that allow users to implement their own custom defined logic, without imposing pre-determined behaviors. Within teaching, it allows to encapsulate complexity of microcontroller programming, while still allowing to implement complex behaviors through simple interfaces. The possibility of integrating Funken into a variety of CAD and media design frameworks offers the possibility of adding interactive functionality to a variety of projects.
