Arduino for Non-Programmers (Firmata Support)
in the last month we get close to the boarders of doing art by digital networks.
so in our case the only way to expand the possibilyties at the moment is to break out networkted
data back to real world in other ways than pixel and sounds.
at the moment we are still no programmers, so we do all our basic sensor and physical control work,
with a horrible complicated chain of tools.
we send out osc or midi from isadora to ableton, take the comand in ableton and map it with a maxforlive instrument via
usb, serial to a arduino with THE standart firmata sketch.
so, it works, but we think everyone can see the way erverybody without coding skills can use the complete pin posssibilyties
on arduino. so we think this is a very cool way to bring non programmer in contact, and make them interressted in learning
real coding, a bit.
so, woland said about 10 month ago, it is a good feature request, but we want to ask on this place another time,
maybe someone out of the community is able to do a useractor to reach the physical possibilyties of arduinos
standart firmata sketch.

@deflost I think that's a great idea for a feature request. A user actor or maybe even a plugin?
I am not able to write isadora plugins, but if anyone is, there are examples for many code languages here: https://github.com/firmata/protocol

Note: moved my post about the upcoming Arduino Firmata actor to a new thread.
But, it seems the original poster (@deflost) has left the forum. So I don't know if he'll see this reply. But basically I have a new actor working that allows Firmata communication.
Didn't Ingmar or Carsten make a backup of the forum, possibly you can get his email from there.
