Blog2012 ≫ Hack day

Missing hack day tomorrow if I don't go in to work (as planned, shopping day) but I'm having one at home today on my own. Got my arduino, plugged it in and am working through examples... I've made the onboard led blink on and off at my command, and plugged my own led in and controlled that. Now I've installed Processing1 so I can easily turn things like a movement of the mouse in to signals out through the usb socket, in to the arduino. Yes, ok, actually it is only more LEDs blinking on and off but this is just the start. full diy home automation2!

And all while the boy was napping...

arduino: Microcontroller, hardware prototyping platform, a tiny specialised computer.
