Hi, I'm looking i ro building one of those, but i'm not sure how to Do That. Becouse i would like arduino to act only If there is a need to rotate monitor.
The thing is. I would like to build MAME ( multi arcade machine emulator), which displays both hotizontal and vertical games, using hyperspin as front end ( software integrating all emulators in one).
Hyperspin should send data thru USB, to arduino giving the comand to start DC motor and keep it running x amount of time ( based on motor speed needed to turn the monitor 90 degrees) efter playing the game, hyperspin should send another data thru USB, saying t To arduino to start the DC motor in oposite direktion. FOR same amount of time.
How ever, there is à script 4 hyperspin and program cald mrotate doing That. But program works thru serial port ( printerport)
Basicly i have 3 questions :
- Is it posible to control arduino WITHOUT programing it in arduino language ?
- Is it posible to write the program in arduino language allowing the controll of arduino with some other program?
- Is there anyone WHO Did something like this?
I still have'nt bought My arduino, but Will by the end of the month.
I know i need the arduino ( Will but Uno), DC sheald, DC motor, resistors, cables and bunch of other stuff. ANy help is highly appreceated.
