28 October 2014 B2.0

  • I’ve added a chapter about generating video signals with the Arduino. In this chapter you’ll not only learn how to connect an Arduino to a TV set. You’ll also learn how to turn your 44” TV set into a really big thermometer.
  • The Nunchuk chapter now shows how to build a simple video game console using your Arduino. It outputs monochrome graphics to your TV set and you can use a Wii Nunchuk to control your games. Of course, you’ll also learn how to create your own video games.
  • The appendix now contains a section about desoldering.
  • I’ve replaced and added many photos and screenshots.
  • I’ve slightly reorganized the code samples.
