Bend Sensor Output
arduino + openframeworks
2 Bend Sensors being visualized.
Reading serial in oF via ofxSimpleSerial to read both separate inputs.
In Arduino, I’m using the INPUT_PULLUP in order to use the internal 20k ohm resistor as a voltage divider.
A0 + A1 as analog pins for both sensors and the other Ground pins for the other side with the alligator clips.
I learned about creating matrices during Make Your Own Multi-Touchpad Workshop.
We read the serial values using vvvv, a commercial toolkit for visual programming, as well as Processing, a JAVA based language.
Since openFrameworks is my tool of choice, I used it to write an app to visualize Multi-Touchpads.
