Tell us about yourself!
No, the Arduino application only uses C++.
Hi, I didn't actually write the Firmata code. It's built into the Arduino application as a "sample" program. However, you could certainly write program like Firmata using the Arduino application. It uses C++ as the language. You can find tutorials here: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage?from=Main.TutorialsYou can also program the Arduino using "blocks", either on the Arduino website or at mblock: http://www.mblock.cc/
Cool, thanks for the links!
Cool, thanks! I've got the exact same node bot. You should take a look at the HyperDuino+R board, which makes it easy to hook up the Arduino to a bot. You can buy them here (scroll down to HyperDuino+R).
Thanks for the nice comment. Definitely post some pictures when you build yours!
We already had white trim in there, so I wanted it to match, but that's definitely another option.
Yep, all good points. I like the idea of using a magnet to locate the stud screws. I have a stud finder but it's not always reliable. And luckily it was an interior wall so no worries about insulation.
Cool, post some pictures when you finish!
No insulation. Yes, I completely agree about utilities. I learned that the hard way a few months ago. Drilled into the basement ceiling to hang a hook, and water started dripping out - it was the drain for our kitchen sink. Easy to fix, but embarrassing. That's why I suggested cutting out the small "pilot" hole to find any unexpected utilities.
Thanks so much! Definitely a fun project - leave a comment if you do a similar project!
Sounds great! Also, since they are between the studs, you could easily do two of them side by side (if you had the space). Best of luck!
Thanks for the feedback!
That's a really good point, which I hadn't even thought about. I'll edit the Instructable to mention that. Thanks!
