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.
Bring the spirit of the holidays with you anywhere using this DIY caroling device and light display!
Practical applications for microcontrollers like the Propeller are all around you everyday. This tutorial will show you how easy it is to add a coin acceptor to your Propeller program (like you'd see in a vending machine) using BlocklyProp!
Your ActivityBot robot can follow a line with an array of four QTI sensors in this BlocklyProp project.
Propeller guards help reduce damage to your ELEV-8 v3 Quadcopter and surrounding objects while you are learning to fly.
Add some challenge to your BlocklyProp line-follow program with colored indicators to tell the ActivityBot 360 to turn right, left, or do a u-turn.
Your Shield-Bot can get ready to roam with its Ping))) turret, using these simple instructions and provided example code.
Whether you live in an earthquake-prone area or not, this project is a fun way to experiment with accelerometers. Thanks to Carol Hazlett for creating this BlocklyProp project with parts from the BlocklyProp Starter Kit.
BlocklyProp makes it easy for you to send commands to control or drive your S3 robot using a Sony IR Remote Control. This section contains tutorials that will show you how.
