Instrument Data Receiver and Display

This was a lot easier than I had imagined. I followed the Ladyada LCD tutorial and her xBee tutorial. I used the code she provided a long with the liquidcrystal library example sketch which you can find under Arduino 0022 File>Examples> LiquidCrystal>HelloWorld. To this point I can type on my computer in terminal and it will show up on the bright blue display. The connection is wireless between 2 xBees. The xBee connected to the computer used and FTDI cable and an adafruit xBee adapter. The computer just has terminal running using this tutorial. (If you want to connect to your xBee using a terminal on a Mac here’s how.) The second xBee is pictured to the right.
