ahhh, hobbies.

So, now that I have a little down time in my life I have begun doing hobbies again. Last weekend I pimped my car a little by adding 3 usb charging ports to the dash and installing blue LEDs in the cupholders and center console. That is just phase one of my car project (I don't know how many phases there are). My next phase includes a microchip and an LCD display that will interface with a temperature sensor, a photocell, my ipod, and an NES controller. The development platform I am using is called Arduino. I just got the controller successfully sending play, pause, and skip commands to the ipod. The next challenging part is getting the track information from the ipod to the LCD. I hope I can figure it out.
