Arduino-serial: C code to talk to Arduino

30 May 2012

Relevant to my recent interests. I bought an Arduino Uno this weekend and the amount of ideas I have right now are scary. The primary benefit of this C library is that it will not trigger a reset on the board. This means you can stream data at intervals and not get a reset.

The Inequality Speech That TED Won’t Show You

17 May 2012
