Firmata LCD control

Hi, I'm wondering if it is possible to get pd to control a serial LCD using firmata.

This is the LCD I want to use http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8358

I've got a bluetooth arduino.

I think there are two main parts to my question:

1) can you communicate over bluetooth and the tx pin at the same time? 2) can pd communicate the necessary data?

Thanks for your assistance, David Kirkpatrick

To use this screen with the Firmata protocol, you would need to write a custom firmware. I just released the Firmata library, so this is now much easier. Check out the Firmata page for more info:
