RoboBrrd will be at Maker Camp on Tinkering Tuesday! August 14th at 12PM PT / 3PM ET!
At this Maker Camp hangout, you will learn all about RoboBrrd! It is an open ended project, as there are many ways to create your own RoboBrrd! We will discuss programming an Arduino and getting the servos moving, and move differently when there are sensors involved. Additionally, we will show off the various RoboBrrds and detail how they were built and what improvements there were from robot to robot!
We will be watching the hashtag #MakerCamp on Google+ for *your* RoboBrrd creations on Tuesday! We hope to see your imaginative and awesome creations!
There’s some great content over on RoboBrrd.com/MakerCamp, and we will be adding even more on Monday! Here are two of the videos, supplies and ideas! We will also have a special Google+ Hangout Extension on Tuesday especially for RoboBrrd, so stay tuned
Send your robot into the cloud with a simple Processing sketch to upload its data to MyRobots or ThingSpeak!
Don’t forget to star/+1/tweet/comment the guide!
If you just want to jump to the code, here is the bare-bones Processing sketch: SimpleThingSpeak!
Be sure to give RoboBrrd some +1′s and friendship requests on MyRobots here!
This guide is a part of the adventure to answer the question “How many MAKE: Projects will it take to get to Maker Faire?”. If you really enjoyed this guide, you can donate towards my Maker Faire travel expenses
I’ll be putting up lots of tutorials on MAKE: Projects, and if you like them a lot, then you can donate on my Maker Faire page here. Since getting to Maker Faire Bay Area is almost impossibly expensive, I wanted something to show for my efforts anyway in case it doesn’t work out :p
The first tutorial in the series is Instant Nature: Quick & Peaceful! If you ever get annoyed at the whir of your computer fans… this one is for you. It combines Hotkeys for Arduino with the Adafruit Wave Shield (my 3rd fav shield)! You can check it out on MAKE: Projects.
Also Instant Nature was mentioned up in the New on MAKE: Projects post on the MAKE: blog! WOOHOO! Thanks!
