Processingarduino

You’ve got your Processing in my Arduino! No, You’ve got your Arduino in my Processing!

Come learn the glory that is hooking up real space to code space. We’ll take apart my Spooky Box, learn how it works, and you’ll build your own. We’ll learn about the Serial interface in Processing, and how to use it efficiently to talk to Arduino.

  • What: Processing+Arduino Class
  • When: Saturday, December 13th @ 2:00PM-4:00PM
  • Where: NYC Resistor HQ 397 Bridge Street 5th floor Brooklyn, NY 11201
  • How Much: $50.00 $25.00
  • Bring: An Arduino, a laptop, and some potentiometers and push-buttons. If you need stuff, let me know. I’m justin at blip dot tv.

Act now for my Special Holiday Special! Just choose “Starving Student” to get in on the fun for only $25.00!

Connect the dots on the spookybox

Calling all Processing peeps! It’s time for another meeting. This time it’ll be on Wednesday, October 22nd at 7PM @ NYC Resistor HQ. Everyone bring your projects to share.

I’ll be showing off the state of the Spooky Box, walking through how it works, and encouraging you all to get involved. It may be your last chance to get in on the spooky action before the big Halloween Party.

Hope to see you there!

The Spooky Box is a simple interface for Processing that consists of 3 knobs and 4 buttons. There are two versions, an Arduino based hardware one which doesn’t exist yet, and a software emulator which I just finished. There’s also an accompanying Processing library that works for both which is ridiculously easy to use.

If you’re looking for a simple, generic UI for your Processing apps, consider trying this out. I’ll be releasing more info as the hardware gets put together.

We’ll be hosting the first Processing Study Group meeting on Wednesday, September 24th at 7:00PM at NYC Resistor HQ. If you’re interested in Processing, from novice to expert, join the mailing list and come check it out! I’m looking for someone to give a 5-minute ‘Why you should use Processing’ talk at the meeting, if you’re interested please let me know. See you there!
