The physical interaction designer’s swiss army knife
Fritzing is a powerful open-source tool to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to work creatively with interactive electronics such as Arduino. It allows users to document their prototypes, share them with others, teach electronics in a classroom, and to create a pcb layout for professional manufacturing.
Fritzing’s core team, consisting of Prof. Reto Wettach, André Knörig, and Jonathan Cohen, is now with IxDS, which is coordinating all further Fritzing-related activities and is dedicated to continue its development.
Initiated as a publicly funded research project at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam in 2007, Fritzing has grown into a mature tool for more than 50,000 users in educational, professional, and DIY contexts. It has become a standard for documenting, teaching, and sharing electronics knowledge among creatives, and has empowered many people to turn their concepts into solid products.
