Introduction to Arduino Uno

The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.


The ATmega328 has 32 KB (with 0.5 KB used for the bootloader).It also has 2 KB of SRAM and 1 KB of EEPROM (which can be read and written with the EEPROM library).​​

  • Download Arduino IDE
  • Plug in your Arduino or Arduino compatible microcontroller via USB
  • Open the Arduino IDE, select: File > Examples > Firmata > StandardFirmata Click the "Upload" button.
brew install nodejs 
node -v
npm -v 
brew install git
npm install johnny-five

install jhonny-five

Test Jhonny-five

var five = require("johnny-five"),
    // or "./lib/johnny-five" when running from the source
    board = new five.Board();

board.on("ready", function() {

  // Create an Led on pin 13 and strobe it on/off
  // Optionally set the speed; defaults to 100ms
  (new five.Led(13)).strobe();

Test the RGB LED

var five = require("johnny-five");

five.Board().on("ready", function() {

  // Initialize the RGB LED
  var led = new five.Led.RGB({
    pins: {
      red: 3,
      green: 5,
      blue: 6
  // Add led to REPL (optional)
    led: led

  // Turn it on and set the initial color

Introduction to Pebble 

 Pebble is a smart watch, that connects via Bluetooth.

Developer Guide 

  1. Pebble C  
    The Pebble C SDK, used for creating native watchapps and watchfaces.
  2. PebbleKit iOS
    Objective-C library for creating companion apps that interface iOS and Pebble.
  3. PebbleKit Android
    Java library for creating companion apps that interface Android and Pebble.
  4. Pebblekit js
    JavaScript component of a Pebble app that leverages features of the connected phone to enhance watchapp capabilities.
  5. Pebble.js
    Create watchapps using only JavaScript code, which controls a provided native watchapp over Bluetooth.

Final thoughts 

“Technology isn’t what makes us “post-human” or “transhuman,” as some writers and scholars have recently suggested. It’s what makes us human. Technology is in our nature. Through our tools we give our dreams form. We bring them into the world. The practicality of technology may distinguish it from art, but both spring from a similar, distinctly human yearning.” ― Nicholas Carr, The Glass Cage: Automation and Us
