and some necessary interconnects

Software

  1. Build GlowLightArduino sketch and upload to Arduino board
  2. Download and install Cinder
  3. You'll need Visual Studio 2010 to build GlowLightCinder project as-is, with some adjustment for Cinder paths. Code should be able to be built on any platform supported by Cinder, I plan on adding Xcode project when have a chance.

Launch Cinder app and make four clicks to set up screen sampling coordinates.

Keys:

  • f - fullscreen toggle
