Hey, so I'm going to be dabbling in some really basic serial communication in a bit. The idea is to use a contact closure (A hacked Staples Easy Button) to trigger an event in my composition. I have a couple copycat Arduino Pro Micros and a couple of Pro Minis on order and plan to put one inside the Staples Easy Button which would be connected to my Mac via a USB cable. The Micro has an ATmega32U4 chip which supports native USB-HID and the Pro Mini has an ATmega328P which supports USB-Serial so I thought that will cover either type of communication I might want. It also crossed my mind that I might want to make an LED inside the Easy Button flash during a part of the composition as well so that would require communication both ways.
I'm really looking forward to playing around with VUO this way and have been reading about the HID and Serial nodes a bit. Even so I haven't found a lot of examples of them in use yet. What would be the simplest way for me to do this project? Are there any good Vuo/Arduino resources for me to read?
