Arduino to vvvv, a Paper Touch Interface

tutorial arduino interface Paper regexpr rs232 tokenizer touch
Credits: I got the idea, and original Arduino Code from here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Turn-a-pencil-drawing-into-a-capacitive-sensor-for/


In this, rather long tutorial, I will be showing you how to receive Arduino messages inside vvvv, and use those to make a basic picture rotator.

We will create a capacitive sensor for Arduino, using a pencil and a piece of paper. Once that is done we will modify the Arduino code so we can use the Serial communication (RS232) inside vvvv to receive the messages and convert them to a simple interface to control a basic picture rotating slide show.

The hardware is easy, and the code is not hard so lets start!!

Love it!! Nice job. If you have the time, some sort of demonstration of communication the other way ie from vvvv to arduino would be awesome!

karistouf: thank you joreg, but external solution from VVVV is not possible.

catweasel: @joreg, I'm not sure he did ;) But if you do use timeliner use this as well autosave as well.

joreg: if anyone knows more osc timelines please put them there as well!

joreg: @karistouf he meant to say there are alternatives. i put some here: animation
