Version 0.3 released

With this new release, the Psybox is reaching a higher degree of maturity. It relies now primarily on the RPi (*), which results in drastic simplification: there’s almost no wiring needed anymore on this platform, the whole code (except for Unidatab) is now written in Perl6 and has been given a rather fussy revamping.

Additionally, the Psybox system can now be installed on any computer equipped with Linux, by editing one of the few user-defined variables in the beginning of the main executable, psyboxctl.

This means that, made free from electronic constraints, we can now concentrate on experimental code and the underlying epistemological challenge, which were the reasons the Psybox was created for. This tool has attained the position where it can play its wanted role: providing a framework for experimental research in parapsychology.

(*) The Arduino Mega code is left available for those who want non-connected, individual, implementations of the Psybox concept. But even there (since all the i2c interfacing with RPi can now be ignored) the new design is smarter and implies less wiring.
