Flash Arduino workshop

This is a video from the Flash / Arduino workshop I led for tinker.it in April 2008. In the video, I’m demoing my flash based RFID reader – the hardware drivers are all written in flash, and should be totally platform independent. I really liked the idea of writing hardware drivers in Flash.

Basically, flash is controlling the hardware, then reading back the 4 byte public unique ID of the standard Oyster card, and rendering it as a colour and rotation value.
