My new obsession with Arduino is coming along leaps and bounds. I can control servos, read the PWM signal from a 2.4g radio control receiver and make a long stream of numbers whizz past in a text window.
But how do I control something more interesting on my computer?
It seems that the Processing environment is an ideal companion to the Arduino IDE. Let’s download it and find out. Single app install, nice and easy v2.0.3. The hello world app draws a circle around the mouse location and comes with nice easy to understand diagrams. Cool.
