Using your arduino board, create a program that detects movement using a PIR or Photoresister sensor or one of the other switches in your kit, then connect it to Processing using the computer serial port. You will then create a new processing sketch (or use one of your generative sketches) that communicates with the arduino. The sketch should somehow react to the presence of the viewer, whether by changing, morphing, start/stoping, etc.

Before we construct our final projects in class, we will introduce you to some basic concepts about working with sensors and microcrontrollers, such as
Using the Arduino software
Installing LED lights on your arduino
Creating interaction using switches
due beginning of class Thursday 10/6

Use the Processing skills learned so far in class to create original generative designs of your choice.
- All generative designs must include both random elements and controlled motion.
- One of your designs must include bitmap images or video.
- One must include simple interactivity, like mouse functions or keyboard functions
The sketch must also include a pdf library install with a keypress function for print output.
You must turn in your sketches to me via email at the end of the day Tuesday 13. To send as an attachment, put your 3 sketch folders in a zip file and send to me. Go to Sketch - Archive.
