#77665 Hello!


I need a little guidance.

I am creating an art installation that will convert ocean waves into data for triggering music with Max MSP or another program.

I have an Adafruit P2021 9-DOF Accel/Mag/Gyro + Temp... AND an ESP 8266 connected on a breadboard.

I have setup the ESP 8266 to use Arduino IDE through this page:
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-fea ... rduino-ide

The IDE serial monitor says I have successfully connected.

Two questions:

1) How do I interact with the ESP8266 wirelessly? The ESP8266 still doesn't compile if the USB cable is disconnected.

2) How do I test that I am receiving signal from the Accel/Mag/Gyro etc.?

The two devices are wired on the breadboard together properly.


Thank you!


Peter
