What are Actors? on Stencylpedia. By Jon (Updated on 2015-10-21) This article introduces you to the key concepts behind actors. Because Actor concepts are intertwined, it's useful to get a little exposure to each before delving into full detail. Contents What are Actors? What are Actors? Actors are the living, interactive parts of a game. Every actor can be broken up into a few common elements. Appearance - How the actor looks or appears in-game.Behavior - How the actor behaves or acts.Physics - How the actor interacts with the world when it collides with it. Appearance Appearance dictates how an Actor looks.

Animations are a collection of frames that are played out in sequence and usually loop, to form a fluid, living visual representation of the actor. Actors need not be bound to a single animation. Consider the hero or "player" character in a platformer such as Mario. Coming from Scratch? Behaviors Behaviors tell an actor what to do and how to react. Behaviors are unique in that they are reusable and configurable. Reusable. CDS | Eyes. Download the image files from here: Extract the zip file to your desktop.

Android app development isn’t always simple. MIT’s App Inventor is the easiest way to learn how to make an Android app, but if you don’t know how to get started our latest guide can help. From author James Sherar, “Make Your Own Android App: Your Unofficial Intro To MIT App Inventor” goes over the basics of making your very own app for Android using the educational App Inventor tool.

Take the first step toward learning to make apps instead of just using them. App Inventor makes Android app development highly visual, and highly intuitive. It is an easy and fun way for the uninitiated to learn about computer programming, and is at the same time a productive tool for advanced programmers alike. It is worth mentioning that despite being in its infancy – that is to say beta phase – this platform still offers a robust set of programming tools for all levels of programming ability and is ideal for use in education.

(Some very minor updates were made to this in November 2019). This tutorial covers basic App Inventor Bluetooth communications code. Subsequent tutorials will add additional features. To implement and test this sample code, you need access to two Android devices – one to act as a Bluetooth “server” and the other to act as a “Bluetooth” client. I tested this code using an old LG smart phone running Android 2.2 and a new Nexus 5 running Android 5.0.1. This tutorial is lengthy – it introduces Bluetooth communications, then presents the user interface and blocks code for both the server and client programs, and then discusses how to set up the Bluetooth Communications link using “pairing”.Downloadable App Inventor source code for the client and server is at the end of this post.This is the first of several posts on Bluetooth.

Video Tutorials (AI2) Course In A Box Intro. Course Introduction. The Course-in-a-Box is a set of on-line materials to help teachers design App Inventor courses and/or modules.

The course outline and materials are modeled after Professor David Wolber's course, "Computing, Mobile Apps, and the Web" at the University of San Francisco, which he has taught since a Google App Inventor pilot in 2009. You are welcome to use and have your students use the course materials directly, link to the materials, copy and remix them (citations/links are welcomed!) , and pick and choose modules as you like. Whether you are teaching on-line, in-person, or a hybrid "flipped" classroom, the Course-in-a-Box is for you! Extracted from a review: was designed for teachers by a university professor. Teachers should think of as a toolbox packed full of options. Learn to build Android apps | Appinventor. Java Bridge.
