Me and some friends are developing an art installation using a kinect to detect user movements and then making several arduinos to react to it, DIFFERENTLY. We are still configuring a Xbee to dispatch a broadcast signal from the kinect using the Flash as3Glue library but we are antecipating a big big problem: how can we make each of the Arduinos receiving the Xbee broadcast signals to react differently, since they all are using the same "Standard Firmata" ?
The scenario is like this: If I raise my right arm, the kinect detects it and the as3Glue library sends a signal to the Xbee that will dispatch it wirelessly to all Arduinos, each one reacting in a way. Turning a light, turning a motor, etc, etc.
It is my first time dealing with Arduino. Can you guys give me tips about how to accomplish that? Should I start to try to hack the Firmata to react differently to the signal? I would like to avoid that, since I am not that good with Arduino language.
Thanks in advance.
