Currently the workshops are planned for a two-day (each 6 hours) schedule. This includes, designing the interface, soldering the components and learing to setting up the software.

Our hardware framework allows to connect up to 8 analog control inputs (pots, lightsensors etc.), 8 digital control inputs (switches) and 8 LEDs. The current design uses a HAT (Hardware Attached on Top) audio interface, but any USB soundcard running with the Raspberry Pi is also possible to use. See Build COSMO for more details on the hardware design
The basic cost is the hardware components you need to build the device. These are appoximately 1600 NOK (180 EUR). For a workshop, where we provide the infrastructure the costs are 2300 NOK (250 EUR) per participant.
Approximate components cost: Component Price * Raspberry Pi 400 NOK * Audio Interface 350 NOK * Enclosure 150 NOK * COSMO HAT 300 NOK * Other components 250 NOK * Shipping and customs 150 NOK Total component cost 1600 NOK
