I like to interface various hardware to Lua somewhat similar to:
I have a number of early revision boards in stock that I would love to
get rid of and free up some stores space, unfortunately these do not
come equipped with a USB interface on them, but USB to serial cables are
easy to come by.
These will be pre-programmed with a basic interface to allow you to
operate IO directly on the unit via serial, or from Lua - also down the
serial. I have source code that lets my web-servers talk to the hardware
etc.. The more proficient users can also reprogram these at a low level
if they want to fancier things, like ADCs, signal processing etc. I have
even managed to get one to talk to an SD card to store data.
I recently created a rig using one that drives a stepper motor and
operate a camera to take 360degree pictures of objects etc.
If you are interested in said boards, please feel free to email me. As I
said, these are free, but with one caveat, if you create something cool
I would love to hear about it or see it. I will soon be blogging my own
