BasicMata Interface Sketch V01 released (with VVVV Demo)


while working with some Students at the HFG Offenbach, I had some problems with recent Arduinos and Firmata. Although i thought it would be better for beginners to have an even simpler Version of Firmata, which can't be reconfigured. Thats why I began to write a new basic and simple Firmata. The BasicMata The code is maximum simple and doesnt apply any non standard functions. The Protocoll is based on the PING/PONG paradigm. More info here:

Since I'am working mostly with VVVV I added a Module for it. If would be cool to have such a Demo for Processing, PD, Max, OF and whatever as well .... So if You could do some Demo please contribute! Become a contributor: And I really love to here if this little code block is working well for You!
