Featured Thing!

Description

Download (Git): **Now all the files are hosted in GitHub:** github.com/carlosgs/ArduSkybot

Remember the MiniSkyBot? It just got better!
Using an Arduino UNO, the Printshield and CNY70-board it has all these features:
- Ultrasonic distance sensor
- Two light sensors
- Line sensor
- Two buttons
- Four LEDs
- Piezoelectric speaker

I have uploaded a video in case you want to see this design being used in a small robotics workshop:

Thanks to both!

They all sounded nice, but it hasn't been possible for me to test:

- Modkit: it is not open-source and has locked features (hardware configuration)

- C-Minds: There is no OSX version :S

- Minibloq: Probably the best candidate, but didn't worked for me...

Please let me know if anyone succeeds using some of these graphic programming software with Arduino :)

Minibloq (http://blog.minibloq.org/) is another visual programming tool you might want to have a look at.

You might want to have a look at the Babuino Project also,

(http://c-minds.com/) which is a Logo interpreter for the arduino that can be used with a Logo visual programming environment.

Instructions

1) Print MiniSkyBot chassis and wheels (note: you will need 6 AAA batteries instead of 4, I use a separate two battery holder)
2) Make a Printshield (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26816) and a CNY70-board (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26819)
3) Trick two servos for continuous rotation (http://www.acroname.com/robotics/info/ideas/continuous/continuous.html KEEPING THE INTERNAL ELECTRONICS!).
4) Assemble everything. You can place the piezoelectric speaker behind the board, stuck to the chassis.
5) Program and enjoy :)

Combine this with Modkit (http://www.kickstarter.com/pro... and it should be awesome. Like a Lego Mindstorm, but you can make it yourself!

You are right! Thanks for the link.

I will give Modkit a test over the summer :-D
