Hi Ben,

The real-time data acquisition software shown in the video is available for download at:
http://camoes.lx.it.pt/files/OpenSignals_3.0.exe

The simpler example shown in the flower case is this one:

We're looking forward to hear about your cool projects and applications.

Cheers,

Hi Ben,

We'd like to apologize in advance if you find this to be a rather basic suggestion, but given that our user base is quite heterogeneous we need to start from the basics upwards.

When you download and unzip the FlowerBIT example code, you'll see a file named "server.py". In principle, if you edit this file using a text editor (e.g. Notepad++) and change the MAC address on line 101 to that of your device it should work.

A good think to confirm as well is that you have a working Bluetooth adapter connected to your computer either internal or external.

You may want to try manually pairing your device with the computer as well. For that you need to open your Bluetooth device finder, search for devices in range until one named BITalino appears, and select the option to pair using a code provided by the manufacturer, which for BITalino is 1234.

I hope you find this information to be of use and we're looking forward to hear about your cool projects and applications with BITalino.

Best regards,
The BITalino Team

hiya

thanks for the info, i now got the bitalino working with the mac version of open signals, thanks.

But the problem i have is that i can not get the data out.

this is want i want to do,
i what to use the bitalino as a heart monitor, to control a video program that has being made in open frameworks.

Openframeworks has a websocket library that i have used before, and it works well.

http://www.openframeworks.cc
https://github.com/labatrockwell/ofxLibwebsockets

so the way i am thinking is, i would like to be able to connect to the bitalino websockets or the py websockets and stream the data in to open frameworks.
.

when i try to connect thought the data does not come in.

these are the vars that initialise the connection

host
channel
port

what would these be? and is this way possible.
got any better ideas of a way i can stream the data from the bitalino , into openframeworks?

Hi Ben,

I believe that the simplest way is for you to use the Python API directly, rather than using the OpenSignals software.

I'll send you an e-mail with some example code that you can test and check if it helps you move further with your project ;)
