Blue-Bot Bluetooth Floor Robot Full Product Description See the components inside Blue-Bot through a clear shell - children can see its buzz! Use the Blue-Bot like a normal Bee-Bot and program it on the robot itself. Raspberry Pi Scratch Robot I found an application for the Raspberry in my classroom! With the endless possibilities of the Raspberry Pi in education, it is difficult to focus on one application. This is my attempt to document a focused application. I am sure this idea will branch out into other ideas or supplemental ideas will follow. Starting with the Raspberry Pi (part 1) Introduction I always wanted to be able to control my electronics and multimedia with a simple and flexible system that could be easily installed and configured. After working with both PICs and Arduino, I have found the ultimate solution: the Raspberry Pi.

Blue-Bot® Bluetooth Floor Robot Teachers who looked at Blue-Bot® Bluetooth Floor Robot also looked at... Blue-Bot® helps you code, debug and simulate algorithms for the new National Curriculum for Computing. Plan your algorithm on the screen of your device and send it remotely for Bluetooth enabled Blue-Bot® to perform right in front of you! See the components inside Blue-Bot® through a clear shell - children can see its buzz!

Using a camera with Scratch on the Raspberry Pi I needed camera control with Scratch on the Raspberry Pi for a primary school aerial photography project. I added a new python extension for Simon’s ScratchGPIO that allows either the Raspberry Pi camera or a regular USB webcam to be used with Scratch. Follow Simon’s instructions for installing over on his site. Google and Raspberry Pi join forces to create Coder Over the last few years, interest in coding (especially for the web) has led to a blossoming of resources that help average people learn how to program from scratch. Google has decided to join the fun with a new tool called Coder — along with the help of the low-cost Raspberry Pi PC. With Coder, users can develop their own apps for the web and then host them on a miniature server located directly on the Raspberry Pi.

Building a Raspberry Pi Robot and Controlling it with Scratch Happy New Year everyone! Things have been a bit quiet on this blog due to the Christmas rush, and the fact that we’ve been spending time on product development (more on that in a future post). But here at last is the 3rd and final post in our series on the Raspberry Pi robot we […] Welcome to the second part of our series of posts, describing the workshop we ran at the recent Digimakers event at @Bristol. In the last post we described the outline of the workshop and looked at the hardware of the Raspberry Pi robot that we built for the event. Scribbling Machines Some of the many uses of strawberry baskets: structural support for scribbling machines! An offset weight on a motor, a power source, a supporting structure, and a writing implement: the prototypical scribbling machine. Troubleshooting a top-heavy contraption.

Raspberry Pi Table of Contents: The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video.

Hardware That Can Connect to Scratch Scratch can connect to some real world hardware. Some of the features are natively built in, while some are added through an extension or modification. Hardware Scratch can Connect to Make a Scribbling Machine Collect these things: 1.5-3.0 volt motor [link]Note: You can find motors in all sorts of mechanical toys and common household objects; we encourage you to salvage one instead of buying it! AA battery A piece of hot melt glue stick Broccoli band (thick rubber bands used for produce) Markers Recyclable container such as a strawberry basket or yogurt cup Masking tape Paper for testing Some other helpful materials: Clothespins; Popsicle sticks; wood skewer sticks; pipe cleaners; wire; nuts, washers, or other small weights; wire stripper; scissors; small screwdriver; googly eyes.
