Maxuino update in progress for Firmata v2

For my courses I have been trying to update marius schebella's great maxuino for the new firmata v2. They changed the way digital ins and outs are routed and so I concentrated on repairing the original patch to reflect the changes. The original maxuino v.004 is here. My update which is still not cleaned and does not include the help file patch is found here. I will be cleaning it up this weekend and calling it an official update to .005 very soon. I am proud to have my first somewhat significant contribution to the firmata/max cause.

Wii nunchuck for Flash

These files are for interfacing the Wii Nunchuck and Flash. Included in the package is the Arduino file, the Flash file, and TinkerProxy. After loading the Arduino with the file, start tinker poxy and then reset the Arduino board. Run the Flash file, all the inputs should be obvious. The file is derived from


Wii nunchuck for Processing

Here are files for the Arduino and Processing to interface with the Wii Nunchuck. The arduino file is derivative of work by Tim Hirzel The processing sketch has elements representing all of the various Wii Nunchuck inputs: X, Y, Z acceleration, the joystick X and Y, and the two buttons.

This blog has been created to share some of the files I have been generating for my courses on Interactivity, both on and off screen. I will be posting code for Processing, Arduino, Flash, and more. I hope it is as helpful as the code I have found to make many of these pieces possible. Pass on the sharing.
