Phidgets are a collection of inexpensive, programmable devices, you control via USB and .NET programming. There are scores of Phidgets sensors (temperature, humidity, IR, current, distance, light, magnetic, motion, pressure), inputs (sliders, buttons, touch, rotation), LCD displays and motors. We’ll piece together a few and program them with the new (and free), Microsoft Visual Studio Express!
