Great project! In the next weeks I might have some time to contribute some stuff. Is there a documentation about the serial protocol? Otherwise I will extract it from OM_Serial_Com_Client.pde. I don't like (or know) perl too much, so I want to write the communication in python...
Furthermore: I did not check the perl ui yet, but I wondered if there is a GUI. If not, then I could write one in QT.
