Example Usage:

from bioshake_device import BioshakeDevice
dev = BioshakeDevice() # Might automatically find device if one available
# if it is not found automatically, specify port directly
dev = BioshakeDevice(port='/dev/ttyUSB0') # Linux
dev = BioshakeDevice(port='/dev/tty.usbmodem262471') # Mac OS X
dev = BioshakeDevice(port='COM3') # Windows
dev.shake_on(speed_target=1000) # speed_target (rpm)
dev.temp_on(temp_target=45) # temp_target (°C)
devs = BioshakeDevices()  # Might automatically find all available devices
# if they are not found automatically, specify ports to use
devs = BioshakeDevices(use_ports=['/dev/ttyUSB0','/dev/ttyUSB1']) # Linux
devs = BioshakeDevices(use_ports=['/dev/tty.usbmodem262471','/dev/tty.usbmodem262472']) # Mac OS X
devs = BioshakeDevices(use_ports=['COM3','COM4']) # Windows
dev = devs[0]
