Wanna know what arduitter is all about?

So you wanna know what the heck is Arduitter, huh? Take a look at this post and get into the main idea of it. Then, let me know what you think of it.


Have any suggestions? Fell free to send it by email or right here on the blog itself.
Wanna know everything that happens on the project? Follow arduitter on twitter and get to know about any news before everyone else.

Building the bird

This past week i've been trying to get the correct size for the bird so that it can fit the whole thing (Arduino, Wave Shield and LCD) in it.

In a past post (http://arduitter.blogspot.com/2010/04/first-attempt.html) i built an A4 bird and it definitely doesn't fit what i've got to put in it. So, i tested with the A3 and it didn't get large enough to hold the LCD. Pictures of it with the Arduino inside below.




Now, i printed it on a A2 paper and it appears to be the perfect size. Next step now is to cut it and build the model pieces so i can put them together using MDF. I'm thinking about using 3mm MDF that is not very hard to work and is thick enough to hold everything in place. I intent to buy the MDF and get it done until the end of this week.

It's working

Finally my idea has a shape (not exactly), lots of wires and my dad asking what was that noise. Here are some pictures and a video of it working with Twitter.




No portuguese today. Going to bed.

[EDIT]

Something went wrong and as you probably realized there's no video.

[EDIT #2]

Here's the video.

All together - Tudo junto

Below is a picture of the Wave Shield and the LCD connected to Arduino. They're not working together yet, i'll have to work on the code.

Segue uma foto do Wave Shield e do LCD conectados ao Arduino. Ainda não estão funcionando juntos, tenho que juntar os códigos.
