Arduino + Flash test 11:27 on Wednesday

New toys at the Pussel office: 3D flash animation controlled using a rotary knob! Useful? Not. Geeky? Definitely. :)

First Mikko connected a potentiometer to the Arduino board and then the Arduino to his PC through USB. The laptop runs a serial proxy service which channels the USB communication to a port, accessible from Flash through an XML socket. Turning the potentiometer controls the viewing distance of the 3D model running in the Flash player.

    Ååh, definitely geeky! Are you trying to sell this to your customers? You should implement Pong using your new toy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pong

    We already thought about ordering a set of paddles to do it. :D
