MUIO: “Programming-free” microcontrollers


Steve Symons’ “MUIO Interface” is an easy to use, homebrew microcontroller board that operates over USB and requires no programming to get started. The board features everything from on board analog to digital converters, an I2C bus, three expansion busses, and more! Programming the board is only OSX and Linux compatible at the moment, but there might be hope for a Windows version soon. Since MUIO works seamlessly with Adobe’s Director and Flash applications, Max/MSP, Processing, SC3, and PureData, it’s easier than ever to get “real-world” sensing into your projects. Think of it as “Arduino Light’.

    Sounds awesome. I think it took a bit of a bandwidth hit though.

    P.S. May be even harder to pronounce than Arduino, needs a more Web 2.0-ish sounding name. Let’s call it Glarble.

    I’m not sure I get this…

    If you take an Arduino/Freeduino and load it with PDuino, Arudino2Max or any one of the numerous packages out there that turns a microcontroller into a sensor box, you have the same thing– but it only costs $35. Seems like unnecessary complication to build an entire platform around a “programming-free” sensor box.

    site now back up.

    Actually removes a complication – especially if you don’t want to programme anythung other than Flash, Max/Msp etc etc
