Once installed, only one shortcut is available to make and upload your program on the Arduino board: Command-Shift-A
You can clone/fork the project from Github too, make your own repository and I’ll be glad to add your patch to the current simple bundle.
And come back during the week, you’ll surely see some update during the intensive RepRap hack session!
After a lot of debugging on bbvablogs.com, I needed serious fun to keep it up, and suddently I found the perfect project to remove the dust on my arduino board: a blinking led that would tell us when someone is visiting the website!
Freeduino.org is currently the best place to fetch articles and information about Arduino project. Tonight, I’ve made a simple script to move this Creative Commons index on Del.icio.us, hoping it would become a better place to fetch last Arduino information!
The original project for tonight was to build a 3D LED cube, and the not-so-clever idea was to compact it the size of a normal dice.
Big mistake: first it was hell to solder all the tiny intersection of led cathods, then there is no way to pile up the array of leds if you don’t let space between them… maybe there’s a solution to that, and I’ve not find it yet.
Anyway, it was ready to connect to Arduino board, and to try to program this new led-matrix. Easy and fun, only problem is debugging messages while verifying source code on Arduino software that doesn’t help much, I’ll have to learn more about its syntax limitations.
Here is the result, 5 days before returning to Toulouse to visit Claire:
Internet communication has not reached its limit yet: we have text, sound and video easily available. Few years ago, some people tried to develop odor extension, but I’ve not seen this really breaking through yet.
Because I need to communicate with someone, and I miss something, I was thinking about adding another sense to our internet communication: touch.
Since then, I’ve been playing with the Arduino card (see previous post), and play to connect it to an USB massage gadget. By internet, both gadget will communicate, each personn allowed to make the other gadget massaging more or less quickly.
Wanting to do a fast electronic prototype of an idea I had last night (more description about this idea in a later postÃ , I discovered this morning the Arduino project.
What is Arduino?
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
