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!

microdee: I realized that I will just do those updates on separate branches, Still stay tuned...

microdee: I'm making mp.* packs CI and release friendly. Meanwhile vpm downloads might not work with them for a bit. Stay tuned...

Xini: the old problem was the renderer on a second screen freezing when fullsize, under certain conditions which i can't remember now...

Xini: @joreg now i got hold of a projector and i tested, should be fine! :D @joreg

joreg: i'm not exactly sure what "old problem" you're talking about. have you tested if it still exists?

~3d ago

Xini: tx @joreg . Do you think it's better for me to install a 32bit version of vvvv, or is there another workaround for that old problem?
