This example simplifies the task of collecting data from the accelerometer and processing or graphing it with your computer. The Esplora is used as a keyboard, sending keypresses to a connected computer about the state of the accelerometer. If you open a spreadsheet application, you can start to log the data read from the accelerometer.

To start and stop the datalogging, press the down push-button. The Esplora's LED will indicate the state of the Esplora. The slider is used to set the sampling interval.

The RGB led is blue when the esplora is ready to start, you only need to push the start button and the led will become green until the Esplora begin to send data to the computer.
While the Esplora is sending samples to the speradsheet the led will turn to red.

Clicking again the push-button will stop the Esplora to send data to the computer, so in this example the push-button on the Esplora, pratically is acting as a switch.

!!!Accelerometer Table

In this example the Esplora is used as a keyboard, if you open a generic speradsheet you can start to log the data read from the accelerometer.
To start the datalogging you have to press the direction down push-button and the led will indicate the state of the Esplora.
The slider is used to set the sampling interval.

(:div class=BOM :)
!!!Hardware Required
* Arduino Esplora
(:divend:)

!!!Circuit
Only your Arduino Espora is needed for this example.

!!!Code

This example set the Esplora as a keyboard so, once the you press the start button the Esplora will start to type characters as a keyboard instead of you.
The characters typed are formatted to fit inside a speradsheet rows and colums. Each row of the spreadheet will contain a timestamp and the 3 accelerometer axis readings.

While the Esplora is sending samples to the speradsheet the led will turn to red.

Clicking again the push-button will stop the Esplora to send data to the computer, so in this example the push-button on the Esplora, pratically is acting as a switch.
