Clyde is a really cool robot lamp. It’s equipped with a bright white light, an RGB eye, and you can add capacitive touch to its legs.
The eye button is made out of silicone, and there is an IR detector that can tell when it is pressed. Quite clever!
Recently Fabule sent a Clyde and a bunch of parts. They are sponsoring me to make projects for the #ClydeInvasion community!
The first endeavour was to create the ClydeDev library. If you want to dive in to making modifications for Clyde, this library is a good base to start with. It’s just the basic API without and behaviours added in.
There will be five projects coming up in the future. Here are some hints as to the adventures that Clyde will be embarking on:
“Hippest Robot Award”
“[...] wild Clydes leaping through branches of trees like monkeys.”
“[...] Clydes who were listening would rejoice and join efforts on the invasion”
“[...] when no one was looking, and breakdance on their new and shiny shells”
Can you guess what any of them will be? Stay tuned for the project videos!
Mega thanks to Fabule – this is very cool and appreciate the opportunity!
