Making projects with a few WS2812 LEDs is fun, but making a project with a whole strip of them is even better! Learn how to create scrolling patterns and even incorporate distance sensing and robotics in this BlocklyProp project.
WS2812 LEDs are extremely versatile and fun to use. This 2-part project will give you plenty of creative ideas on how to incorporate them into your BlocklyProp applications.
Create a database of records by storing RFID tag numbers with meaningful information (like names, dates, or locations) together in EEPROM. Using an OLED screen you can even display the records for each tag as you scan them.
This BlocklyProp project for the Propeller Activity Board or the FLiP Try-it Kit makes a tilt-controlled 4-note musical instrument, with LEDs that light up for each note. Make a few in your classroom for an electronic bell choir.
Display your Memsic 2125's X/Y tilt position on an interactive OLED display! With the Propeller FL!P (or Activity Board) and BlocklyProp, this project will be simple and fun to complete.
BlocklyProp + Multicore = Amazing! Learn how to build and use functions—re-usable chunks of code—with BlocklyProp. Then, try launching the functions into their own cores to run at the same time on the multicore Propeller microcontroller.
With just two servos, the ColorPal sensor, and a whole lot of hot glue, you can build your own Candy Sorter and program it in Blockly. Yum!!!
Need help parking in just the right spot to clear the garage door without tapping the front bumper? Use the PING))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor to measure the distance to your car, with indicator lights to tell you when to stop. This little project uses the parts in the BlocklyProp Starter Kit.
