Physical computing is a field related to modern Do It Yourself (DIY) and art projects. It is based on using sensors and various electromechanical devices together with computers and microcontrollers to create interactive physical systems, such as interactive installations and experimental toys.
Arduino is a popular open source physical computing platform consisting of a microcontroller board, an IDE, and a language for the board's programming. The Arduino IDE is available for OS X, Windows, and Linux.
In this section, we will consider how to read data from an analog input of the Arduino board and send it to our
VideoSynth openFrameworks project.
To run the example in this section, you need an Arduino board. ...
