Robotic Drawing Arm

Using a Board of Education Shield for Arduino, build a robotic arm unit and control it using a 2-axis joystick. Attach a pen or pencil to the end and create a drawing device to write your name, draw shapes, and more.

Physics Fun Badge

Turn your Parallax Hackable Electronic Badge into a Physics Measurement Tool using the on-board accelerometer, a PING))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor, and a FlexiForce pressure sensor. The Physics Fun Badge measures distance, tilt, and force. It can display live readings or record them. Recorded readings can be visualized as a graph on the main screen and exported as comma-separated values using the SimpleIDE terminal.

DC Motor Control

Create a project to control DC motors using a simple Joystick, Xbees, Polulu motor driver board, and two Activity Boards. This is a great beginner project for those interested in DC motors and wireless communication through Xbee modules.
