For those of you who use Pitchfork, An update should be coming out within the next few days. More buttons on the control panel, a fix to the Xively panel, and a Color Picker panel. I’ve also learned that Pitchfork is being used by educators in STEM classes, and so I’ve decided to make it free. For those of you who supported the cause, you rock, thank you very much.
Today I worked on adding accelerometer control to the Control Panel. Here is the way it works now, and I would love to hear suggestions. I have a switch that enables/disables the accelerometers output. I’m going to allow the user to specify how often the data is sent in seconds. From there, the app will send x,y and z axis data as JSON, exactly how the phone outputs it, which is a value between -1 and 1 for each axis. Response back to the app needs to be the standard JSON format that is used in the other panels.
