Hello Ricardo.

This is a great project.

I got it running in an OLPC XO-1, with some minor tweaks to the
Arduino.sh script.

it would be nice to have a use tutorial with examples README.txt is
not very informative,.i saw you get inspired by the fritzing project!
way to go!.

Thanks again for your hard work

Rafael Ortiz
