Cultural Technology Development Lab

The Cultural Technology Development Lab is an R&D program where university faculty and students, museum professionals, and other partners work together on technology and design solutions for cultural institutions.
We are currently working with the new Manhattan Project National Park in Los Alamos, the Las Cruces Museum of Natural History, the New Mexico History Museum, and our newest partner, Intel/Two Bit Circus.

The Museduino is an open source hardware kit developed in-house by CTDL. It is built to support robust public exhibits using the arduino IDE and the Arduino Uno footprint. It’s currently deployed around the country in museums, national parks, and installations. Information, tutorials, schematics and kit purchasing is at museduino.wordpress.com.

The CTDL has also been artist- in-residence at Grinnell College, Kenyon College, and College of the Atlantic.
