[INTERN] Physical Computing/Arduino development

We are looking for an intern to help us build our first large-scale “Plant-in City” art installation in New York.

Plant-in City is a modular architecture with embedded sensors, actuators, and mobile access that supports life with plants. Our goal is to create a new immersive experience that blends technology and nature together—think Internet of Plants, to give you an idea.

We finished our Kickstarter campaign successfully and we got great press from WIRED, Core77 and Treehugger among others. We are currently working on putting together an ambitious interactive art installation scheduled to open in November 2012 in a gallery in the Lower East Side.

Our ideal intern candidate has:

•	Some knowledge of Arduino hardware, shields and code
•	Decent physical computing skills (in particular soldering and circuit design)
•	Self-motivation to research and figure out the solution to a bug when troubleshooting
•	Optional: Knowledge of ZigBee mesh networks 
•	Optional: Knowledge of Pachube/Cosm API or similar IoT web services
•	Optional: Knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript optimized for mobile devices

The internship should last a couple of months through December. We have a small budget and we could arrange school credit for a fall internship if applicable.
