Have you ever wanted to have a physical "panic" button on your AIR app that you could hit? How about building an application that could collect GPS coordinates? Or one that responds to light?
During our May meeting on Thursday, May 19th, we will be introducing the concept of building Flex and AIR applications for custom electronics. We will be going through basic electronic concepts, hooking up an Ardunio Microcontroller to a computer, and interacting with it from a Flex application. We will be working with LEDs, push buttons, gas sensors, etc. to make a an application that you can not only control with a mouse, but can also interact with phyically.
During the summer, we will be meeting in room 1345 Engineering, which is the north-west-most room in the Engineering building complex. The meeting will start at 7pm, with free parking located a block south in the Communication Arts and Sciences parking ramp (Ramp 5).
