PmodACL accelerometer: sending data from Arduino to Processing with the I2C protocol

Some of my students had some troubles when using the PmodACL accelerometer sensor with the I2C protocol to communicate with Processing. Basically, from time to time the accelerometer sends some extra information concerning the state of the I2C channel. From the Processing side, we need to clean up and ignore these extra data before parsing the information. Also, from time to time, it seams that not all the values are transmitted by the accelerometer. Here a possible solution.

Una delle più belle e affascinanti località della Sicilia. Ecco, una tela che ho dipinto alcuni anni fa. La tela è realizzata riutilizzando materiali locali molto poveri. In particolare, è stato riutilizzato un vecchio sacco di iuta che mio nonno, contadino, utilizzava quando si lavora nei campi. Quindi, in qualche modo, questo dipint

City light painting WiFi. Let's discover the invisible landscape of networks

Our cities are filled with an invisible landscape of networks. This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs. A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.
