Playing with Arduino, leds, Ruby and Python

Our “CoWorking 24h” workshop ended like never of us planned before this long day!


We focused only in the leds work, at the beginning we did the first two examples described in my previous post, after more couple of examples like – control one led with two buttons or switch it to turn it on and off whenever you decide – control two/three lights with one button using the IDE of Arduino.

Other people around the world also shared experiences using Ruby with gems and finally the THING was done!:: Leds control can be also seen in the Web wherever you are, in this case the experience was programmed with Ruby, web sockets and also the other way:: the Arduino can be controlled from the input of the computer that was programmed in Python.

Here is a video of our first experience as a group. Congratulations for the first step!

  1. Hey, this is awesome! I just moved to Lima from Miami, and brought my arduino stuff with me! Is this an arduino/microcontroller club I can join? If not, can you point me in the direction of one that I can join? I live in La Molina. Thanks!
