Comment(by tonyforster):

 Three files attached, the python code reads and writes to a serial device
 on the USB
 Tested with an Arduino running an echo program.
 Need to copy the serial directory to turtleart.activity
 Standard install of Pyserial fails because Sugar's Python does not have
 the developer tools
 python setup.py install
 unable to open /usr/lib/python2.6/config/Makefile (No such file or
 I copied the serial directory from TortugArdu

 should work wherever there is a FTDI FT232R USB to serial converter IC
