Circles, Squares, and Lines... Oh my!

Fiddling and optimizing Bresenham's line-drawing algorithms is fun, but not like as in something you brag about to your friends doing it on a Friday evening.


The TouchShield gives Arduino users a chance to draw shapes right from the Arduino environment, leaving the nitty gritty for the early morning coffee drinkers.

OMG!! that makes me total loser as I can't get random numbers working on the touchshield - and yes - its friday evening...

Seriously though - I just received the touchshield a few hours ago and it's great!

Im very much a newbie on the arduino scene but shouldnt most of the commands on the arduino work on the touchshield too? Maybe its just me? //O.

Yes, these are some Arduino commands that work at the present time...

delay();
millis();

Serial.begin(9600);
Serial.print();
Serial.read();
