Xtralien Invasion

You can also use Python to interface with devices. How cool is that? Here we learn how to connect our Xtralien X100 unit to a computer using the python serial module.


  1. Setup the Xtralien and make sure your PC/laptop picks up your USB when you plug it in. (Install driver if using Windows)
  2. Write a connect script that makes a serial connection to the Xtralien.
