March Madness/Day 7

The Sphere in Blue
The Sphere in Red
The Electronics with bt adaptor

Today I added serial control to my RGB sphere, and connected it with a python application running on my netbook.

The sphere is controlled over a 9600 baud serial connector, simply by sending it a hex colour code (eg #ff0000 for red).

Compile the AVR code the same way you did for my March Madness/Day 4 AVR program, and install python, pygtk and pyserial (I think these come with ubuntu by default) and you're good to go!
