firmware updated for Arduino 1.0

I have finally gotten around to update the firmware to be compatible with Arduino IDE 1.0 and up.

Also, all of the code is now hosted at github, and the download links on the documentation website have been updated accordingly.

Over the next months, I plan to do a number of documentation updates and more code updates to make the use of the Sense/Stage MiniBees even easier!

n-Polytope (and away from the shop)

The coming month, I will be working on a large project involving 50+ MiniBees, generating sound and light, and sensing sound and light.

The project will be finalised during a residency at Laboral in Spain, followed by an exhibition from July 20th to September 3rd, for more information take a look at:

During the residency, I will not be able to ship any orders that come in, but after July 23rd, I will catch up with any orders that have been made in the meantime.

Workshop – EcoMedia

During the EcoMedia workshop at De Waag, I will be talking about environmental sensing, data gathering and representation, of course, using Sense/Stage!

bugfixes in pydonhive

I’ve fixed some bugs in the pydonhive scripts (related to how the data was parsed and scaled).

It’s highly recommended to update!

There is also now a kind of meta-script where you can choose which method to use to send data on (datanetwork, libmapper, osc), and a GUI to set the command line arguments, together with a way of storing the default settings for command line parameters.

Added an option to send data to all minibees at once

I’ve now added an option to map a datanode in order to send data to all minibees at once. This will only work with the API mode of the minibees.

So far this has been implemented in the clients for Python (the hive client) and SuperCollider.

Examples for custom data with HMC6343 and DS18x20

I’ve now added custom examples for using the HMC6343 sensor (not yet tested), and the DS18x20 temperature sensor (tested).
