Current a graduation student of Digital Media Design at “Pontiticia Universidade Catolica do Rio de Janeiro” (PUC-Rio), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I’ve worked in a few companies as a digital designer, innovative entrepreneur and web developer.

Nowdays I’m interested in Interaction Design and Tangible Prototypes using Arduino, Gadgeteers and stuff.

  • I ‘vesolved the problem using another arduino to communicate via serial with the processing. Then, I’ve connected the arduino digital pins to the el sequencer analog pins. When the analogRead reads > 500 { turns on el wire } else { turns off }.. It works perfectlly


  • I’ve tried the same code ina Duemilenove & Uno, it works perfectly =((

  • Hi thanks for your reply, but it’s not working… Also, it’s printing some very strange characters… When I try I reaaally simple code it also print very strange characters.. For exemple, this code prints “ ~ ~ ”..

    int value = 0;

    void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); Serial.println(value, DEC); }

    void loop() { }

  • I’ve tried to use the serial port to control the EL wire, with no success.. The example code / blink code works perfectly. . This is my “serial port code”:

    int incoming; void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); pinMode(4,OUTPUT); }

    void loop() { if (Serial.available()) { incoming = Serial.read();

      if (incoming == 'q')

    } }

  • Hi! I’m trying to use the Firmatta lib to communicate with a Processing sketch via serial, with no success. Does anybody know what do I have to do? Here is my Processing sketch:

    import processing.serial.; import cc.arduino.;

    Arduino arduino;

    void setup() {

    arduino = new Arduino(this, Arduino.list()[0], 57600); arduino.pinMode(4, Arduino.OUTPUT); }

    void draw() { arduino.digitalWrite(4, Arduino.HIGH); delay(1000); arduino.digitalWrite(4, Arduino.LOW); delay(1000); }

No public wish lists :(
