9. Tweak the Arduino logo

Good news... it’s time for another Arduino instructional video with Massimo Banzi! And this time, our favourite Italian hardware hacker will be using the Arduino to control software running on your computer.

To do this, Banzi will be hooking the Arduino board up to a computer via a USB connection, and then use a specific programme to change the colour of the Arduino logo.

By the end of the video demonstration, you should be able to send a value from Arduino to your computer, and then use a program to interpret this software as a colour. Finally, you will be able to change the colour of the Arduino logo easily using a simple dial.
