Here is another bench puter update. I aded LEDs to a cool box, so every time you press one of the buttons on the processing sketch, the corresponding LED turns on. Pretty cool! Video demonstration and pictures:

This update for the bench puter is different. I completely chucked all the hardware and started fresh. I used a firmata sketch with arduino and processing to talk to the arduino from the computer. Now, all I have to do is open the application on the desktop and press the buttons on it to turn the arduino pins on and off. Pretty simple! Here is a picture of the application:

This post doesn't have any pictures. Just a quick update. I am giving up on the current design of the bench-puter project. Although, I am not giving up on the project. I just got a laptop for my birthday and I am going to rebuild it using just the laptop and the arduino. I just thought that it would be foolish to continue it with hardware while I have a laptop that could control it. I will post an update on it in a few days.
