Two milestones achived today:
  1. Got PureData up and running on the RPi
  2. Started researching into GPIO capabilities

Watched an excellent series of videos on RPi and its GPIO interface.

Now I wonder if I can simplify (and save some cost) by NOT using Arduino boards to run the sensors, but rather read senor data directly via GPIO pins?

Needs more in depth research and some experimentation….
