i made this one
http://www.arduino.cc/playground/DMX/DMXShield

and tried it with some examples like this
http://www.tinker.it/en/uploads/Products/Heartbeat_01.pde

that looked oke, the lamps and the motor i hooked up to the dimmer went as programmed in the code, but then i tried to get it working from my mac with ministageconsole software, to be found here
http://www.chromakinetics.com/DMX/
so that i could control a dimmer from my mac, nothing happend, and now at this point i can't get any further.

after that i tried this option

or maybe someone knows an other 'easy' to control a washing machine motor an mac

this is what i have to build:

http://www.adriaanbeukema.com/index.php5?title=Carroussel

look at the mapping

it ia going to be an carroussel of 12 mirrors, in an room, there wil be movementsensors that have to set motion to the carroussel, the pictures reflected in the mirrors by 2 beamers, and the sound, an microphone that wil record the sound of the motor.
would be cool to get some input.

what are you trying to controll on the motor. speed, direction, or just on or off? also, what are the ratings on the motor?
