Firefly - Arduino
Lessons and demonstrations on how to use Firefly and Arduino. Firefly is a plugin for Grasshopper and Rhino 3D that allows you to use a visual programming language to control an Arduino and interact with 3D models in Rhino. It’s a useful tool for learning, prototyping, CAD model control and interactive installations.
How to read serial data into grasshopper / firefly from an unsupported sensor ( eg. ultrasonic distance sensor) connected to an Arduino. How to operate a second Arduino as an output in grasshopper / firefly.
A basic demonstration changing the colour of a Rhino 3D model with buttons connected to an Arduino via firefly / grasshopper.
A Basic demonstration guide using the touchOSC app on a phone to wirelessly control a servo with touchOSC sender and display button presses with touchOSC listner via firefly / grasshopper & Arduino.
A basic demonstration of a simulated heart rate monitor using an RGB LED, buzzer and joystick connected to an Arduino via firefly / grasshopper.
