Controlling Rhino Model on Android

To calibrate the machine, one sticks their arm through the supporting arch, and then using the TouchOSC app on either an iOS or Android device, can move sliders so that the pen touches their arm in the predetermined spots. So far I have the Android synced with the 3d modeling program, but I haven’t entirely figured out how to get that data through Processing and to the Arduino.

This is only the first of three different parts program this machine. The first step is to calibrate it to your arm as shown in the video. The second part is to apply the image you want to your arm and splitting it up into points that the machine can draw in order creating a sort of connect-the-dots drawing. The third part is getting those points from the 3d modeling program into a form that the Arduino can read so it can turn the 4 motor appropriately.
