Pictures of the final installation, WORKING !
… so it all started, after I managed to make my Peggy2 LED board work, and I was wondering what to do with it…?
What else more obvious than display Twitter messages on it?
Now here’s the high level “design”:
- Peggy2 board with an Arduino microcontroller on it, should receive data serially, either over wire or IR
- how to get the data from the internet ? I don’t want to use a ethernet shield or wireless one, and it turns out I’ve been for so long annoyed that I have a PSP lying around and not being used… So let’s use it, it has wireless and can be programmed in Java (J2ME) be using the PSPKVM (greaaaat job guys !)
So there are 2 problems:
1) program the PSP to connect to the internet and download tweets from there
2) communicate between the PSP and the Arduino on Peggy
