Flash, Arduino & Parallax Ping

[Gabor] reports about a simple project with this video to follow. (low down the volume before pressing “play”)

initially i have planned to realize the art project i was writing in my previous post about, in C++ Open Frameworks. Since I had some trouble though getting the range finder data into OF i have settled for Flash which worked out straight away using a flash’s binary socket and a custom written java proxy server by James Alliban. There are still some performance issues i believe that need to be fixed as well as sudden jumps in range values, which i still need pin point down. Anyways…here’s the result.

You may wonder why using OF or Flash and not, simply, Processing. I do as well. That is why the whole project caught my attention.
