Product description

Packed with fun, useful devices to create, this Quick-Start Guide will help you build your own motion-sensing game controller with a three-axis accelerometer. Then you'll create a universal remote for your TV set or your Mac, with an Arduino and a few cheap parts. The Arduino is a perfect platform for building network devices--you'll learn how to connect it to the Internet and program both client and server applications. In one hands-on project, you'll build your own burglar alarm that updates your Twitter feed whenever someone's moving in your living room. Other projects show you how to integrate Nintendo's Wii Nunchuk into your projects. Sidebars throughout the book point you to exciting real-world projects using the Arduino, and the "What If It Doesn't Work" sections help you troubleshoot common problems. This is a hands-on book written to clear away all the questions and obstacles that would otherwise discourage you from trying physical computing. With Arduino: A Quick-Start Guide, beginners can quickly join the world-wide community of hobbyists and professionals who use the Arduino to prototype and develop fun, useful inventions.
