A while ago I wrote a small app that would execute AppleScript commands depending on the data send from an Arduino board connected to my mac. I’ve been asked a few times to release it but it was just a quick hack. Now thanks to HyperWerk in Basel, I’ve had the time to fix it a bit for a student project. I’m releasing it to see what people do with it. » Blog Archive » Control your Mac from Arduino, the easy way – Link.
