Real time control of a stepper motor using netduino and node.js

The prototype code for controlling V.2 of marbleart is now uploaded as open source.

The web browser connecting to a node.js server using socket.io and the netduino using a simple tcp connection to the server.  We used a EasyDriver Stepper Motor Driver to drive the stepper motor.

The code can be found at https://github.com/evilmachina/marbleartV2_prototype

Don't forget to change the IP address in TcpLisserner.cs to your instance of the node server.  

Have fun hacking!!
