Today we took a makey makey board and attached ground cords to it. Then we took some conductive play-doh and attached it to the ground cords and CONGRATULATIONS! The arrow keys and space/click keys work like magic. All you have to do is attach a ground cord to your self by touching someone else. It then shows up on the computer screen and works like the arrow keys and mouse.
Remote Control Camera Car
This project is going to be able to move with a remote control and when it's out of my view I can turn on the monitor that will show me the view from the car.
The materials I will need are an Arduino board, a small camera, a monitor, a video transmitter four rolling wheels, a programming transmitter to tell the wheels to spin forward, back and turn left and right.
I will need help finding the materials and getting a camera to transmit a signal wirelessly to a monitor
The project that I have decided to make is a remote control car that has a camera attached to it so that I can see where it's going if it's out of my visual view entirely. I will need a a receiver to transmit the image from the camera to a monitor to see where the car is going.
Today we learned how to program our arduino board to tell our led light to blink, and fade. To get it to blink we plugged the led's cords into the ground and 13 units on the arduino board and downloaded it from the arduino application and the led on the board started to blink. Next, we got it to fade by plugging the cords on the led light into the ground and 9 units on the board and went into the arduino application and went into fade and changed the settings to get it to fade slower and quicker.
