algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Emulating the shutters of Institut du Monde Arabe by Jean Nouvel

Through a photoresistor, a servo and a wooden pieces cut with a CNC, we get a module emulating the facade of the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris by Jean Nouvel.

Arduino is responsible for controlling the light readings from the LDR and send an angle mapped to the Servo.
Thanks to Firefly Rhinoceros plugin, get reading also send the LDR mapped to a definition made ​​in Grasshopper, which controlled the shutter opening.

In this way we could analyze the prototype both in physical reality (wooden prototype controlled by the servo) and virtual reality (controlled by Grasshopper).

This exercise was developed during the workshop held at ControlMad' installations (21-22 May) about Arduino + Firefly (Grasshopper) that developed Random[arq] team.

Great work. Could you tell something more about the grasshopper definition? I am looking to create the same thing but just with a slider
