Twitch Switch - Part 3

Load the Code

If you have made it this far you should be admiring your newly constructed Twitch Switch. Now we need to add the brains to this beauty.

First, download the Twitch Switch Software by clicking the link.

Uploading the program to the Teensy LC board at the heart of the Twitch Switch will require two pieces of software:

1 - Arduino IDE: This is the standard software used to program the Adruino family of microcontroller boards. If you are an Arduino user, you probably have this already on your PC. If not, follow the link to visit the website.

2 - Teensyduino Add-On: This is a software add-on for the Arduino IDE that adds the extra functionality needed to program the Teensy series.
NOTE: Check the information on the Teensyduino download page to find the latest supported version of the Arduino IDE. Sometimes it takes a while before new versions are supported so you may need to use an older version of the Arduino software for this to work.

Now, install the Arduino and Teensyduino software and upload the Twitch Switch program. Watch this video for a step by step guide.
