Today we had the chance to run two short worskhops about VVVV in conjunction with the Tinkerkit.

Leaving aside the usual issues with Windows, we were able to introduce 50 people to the use of Arduino as an extention of VVVV into the physical world.

The tinkerKit gave us the ability to concentrate on using Arduino without teaching anything about electronic, because the modules just connect and work.

here are some pictures of the event,

P.s. here’s the custom version of Firmata that works with VVVV, we found that the version linked from the VVVV wiki doesn’t compile.

This is a drop-in replacement for the firmata folder of your Arduino. (it also contains a new version of firmata that reads the nintendo nunchucks).

These are the patches that Alessandro built to demonstrate the different funcionalities of the kit.

Thanks to MESO, Davide Brull and Joreg

    You set your flicker page to private so that nobody can see the pix you posted.

    are you sure about it?
    As I know the set should be public

    question: I’d like to use the arduinofirmata node in vvvv to communicate with my arduino MEGA, anyone of you has a clue how to adjust en code/node/other stuff?

    Hi.
    I don’t think that code is working on the MEGA.
    Did you asked in the vvvv forums?

    update here your problem, if you solve it.
    thanks for commenting
