Using an arduino circuit and the RXTX library in eclipse.
Challenges we ran into
Getting the input from the arduino to use in the java program.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Successfully connecting the arduino to the java program
What we learned
How to use the RXTX library
What's next for Watt a Waste
Create the program on a grander scale
