We have the honor of presenting Maxuino at the FILE symposium in Sao Paulo Brazil at the end of July 2010 and are looking for additional examples of how people are using Maxiuino in their projects, so please share here in the comment section or email us with links, text, images, or videos of how you have utilized maxuino and we will put your name and project up on the screen in Brazil and here on the website as well. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Update: The discussion and presentation went well and I was able to share several of the great examples you guys sent in. Thank you so much!
David Resnick in collaboration with “Vibrationist” Nadia Ahmedout at UC Irvine has created a project using Maxuino to combine the audible, visual and tangible. Here is the video but check out the rest of the information at his site: http://www.davidresnick.me/2010/05/25/undulating-flux/
With the release of Arduino 0018 comes a new version of Firmata that at long last supports the Arduino Mega and the Teensy boards. This means a new version of Maxuino is also needed and is under development. A top notch team has been assembled and is working to solve all of your Max <-> Arduino needs.
Here is the latest update for maxuino. I have done some bug fixes, cleaned the interface and tried to make it more intuitive. More exciting for some of you, I have added support for servos on all digital pins in accordance with the latest Firmata version (2.1beta7) and the great work done by Shigeru Kobayashi and Hans-Christoph Steiner. Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions or requests.
