Mindflex Arduino Hack

My friend and mentor 3ric lent me his mindflex for a project. The first step was to get it to output to a computer.

I hacked it to an arduino using this superb guide.

Short version.
Unscrew 4 screws
Solder 2 wires
Plug the 2 wires into an arduino
Download their code.

The folks at frontier nerds who did all the hard work, did their job well. This hack was shockingly easy. Got some pretty visualizations (also provided by the frontier nerds (whom I can't speak highly enough about)) tonight, but found this easy way to dump the serial data to a .csv via putty. I'm excited to gather some data.
