I've been playing around with those 1-wire sensors as well a few months ago. They're very cool!

Interesting idea to try and hook them up to an Arduino. smiley

Ah, ok. Thank you!  smiley

And wow, what a fast reply again  smiley-wink

A small bump with two small questions, just to make sure I understand everything correctly, being the beginner that I am smiley-wink

1) It is only possible to connect 1 device to the Arduino via the Serial (rx, tx) port, right?

2) Is it possible to connect multiple SPI device to the Arduino? Arduino being the master with multiple slaves?

Thank you once again! smiley

Wow, thank you for the both informative and quick reply.

I am not looking for wireless communication across an extreme distance, so perhaps I should indeed take a closer look at Bluetooth.

After a quick search, I noticed that there are possibilities for extending ranges a bit, lol smiley-wink

Hello everyone!

Forgive me if the following is a stupid question, but I'm rather new to this world of electronics in general and Arduino.
I find it rather interesting though  smiley

I was wondering if it is (of ever will be) possible to connect an Arduino board via WIFI to a computer. My search attempts so far only yielded Bluetooth as a solution.. or hacking a Linksys router (great but I don't have one).

Looking forward to a reply.

Kind regards,

Ethan smiley

And another link via Makezine about the Arduino:

Arduino, the Basic Stamp killer?

Quote
Tod has a great background and comparison of the Arduino and the Basic Stamp, he writes - "Parallax's Basic Stamp is the mainstay for hobbyists wanting to add intelligence to everyday devices. A new system called Arduino provides the benefits of the Basic Stamp at a greatly reduced cost, increased speed, and is entirely open-source." - Link.

From MAKE 07 - Arduino Fever. The tale of a cute, blue microcontroller that fits nicely in the palm of your hand, and the expanding community of developers who love and support it. Page 52 & PDF preview.

Also, there are a number of reactions which include some questions about the Arduino. Perhaps someone from around here with a bit more knowledge about the Arduino than I have might be able to answer those?!? smiley
