Just met up with Jay and Ollie for the mini task we need to present next week on the Arduino and RFID.
We are making an RFID function that will lock your computer when you (and you phone) leave the RFID receiver so your documents (and Facebook profile) are safe from malicious hands…
Once you return and put your phone (that has the RFID chip attached) back onto the RFID receiver it will either prompt you to log back in, or we might get it to fill in the password for you.
We made two mistakes today when first turning on the Arduino that we will have to remember not to do again:
- Not putting wire in the number 2 pin
- Not uploading the script to the Arduino board before attaching the RFID reader
So we will have to wait to talk to Lee now, but at least we have 'done our homework' and got it all ready. If we can't use the scripts then we have found a hex code reference document (of keyboard button numbers) so we could also go down that route as Arduino uses the serial port like the keyboard.
