Control Arduinos with Construct 2. With this plugin you can access the input and output pins of any Arduino compatible board to create games and applications that interface with the physical world.
How about games that interact with desk lamps, fans, curtains or maybe aim lasers - or why not water gun turrets? Or games that you control with potentiometers, sliders, your proximity, heart rate or whatever sensors available?
The Arduino plugin lets you set all digital output pins (high/low), PWM pins for analog output (eg. to control servos or dim light), and read all digital and analog input pins - on any Arduino compatible microcontroller connected to your USB-port.
No Arduino programming skills required. Just upload the included Arduino sketch, run the included server program locally on your computer - and from now on all is done with Construct 2.
You can also use this plugin on mobile devices. Just make sure they are connected to the same network as the computer plugged to the Arduino.

If you are familiar with Construct 2 you will find the Arduino plugin very easy to use. However the download package includes a detailed tutorial as well as a well commented version of the Construct 2 project used in the demonstration video. You don't need any Arduino programming knowledge - but a basic understanding of the different Arduino pins and how to wire sensors and actuators to the Arduino is a good thing.

INPUT: All sensors that use the Arduino digital or analog input pins will work.
OUTPUT: All actuators that use a digital high/low (turn on or off) or an analog (PWM) value (e.g. dimming light) will work.
Actuators that use Pulse Position Modulation, and require special Arduino libraries to work are currently only supported by the Servo-implementation. If you need to use a not supported actuator, please let us know. Maybe we can include it in an update.
The Arduino RX and TX pins for serial communication are currently not supported but will be featured in the next update.
(All future updates of this plugin are free).
