We had a lot of fun and saw some of our backers there. Our interactive demos proved to be a huge hit. Several hundred kids played with Scratch and modified our game in real time. A lot of kids now learn Scratch in elementary school and they could immediately see the benefit of having joysticks […]
So I made a post a few days ago which described how the board is used through Python. But as you hopefully already know, this is only half the story! The RPiSoC only realizes it’s fullest potential when programmed through PSoC Creator. But, C-programming and visual interfaces sometimes scare people off. Not to fear though, […]
We often get caught up in trying to explain whats so special about interfacing your software with the real world. I think this post and video from the Raspberry Pi foundation sums it up nicely. And if you’re curious what we add on top of them: Analog I/O, lots of hardware PWM, Arduino Shields, programmable […]
I decided to make a quick video that walks through some of the details of the API, at least some of the front end parts of it. To that end, enjoy this video of me playing with the RPiSoC through the Raspberry Pi in real time! (mostly) [I say mostly, because the two videos I […]
Here is bluetooth communication between the RPiSoC and an Android phone. Imagine all the things you want to control in your house without actually walking up to them. I send a string of text from the phone to the RPiSoC, which then displays it on screen. We used the JY-MCU bluetooth module for this, because […]
First off, here is a video demonstration of Scratch. It goes through the creation of a Scratch program that utilizes the RPiSoC’s analog functionality. I then go one step further and create a simple two player game out of it. For this post I thought I’d give a detailed explanation of all the Scratch blocks used […]
Our Youtube video sums it up nicely. If you prefer text, read on. Scratch is a visual programming language that lets people of all ages unleash their creativity, no programming experience needed! You simply drag and snap blocks to create your program. Here, we animate Scratch the Cat using a potentiometer hooked up to an ADC […]
We have finally nailed down our date and budget, so we will be launching on the 19th! We will have the RPiSoC, RPiSoC + Pi model B+, and one of our projects as a kit as reward tiers. Would anyone like to see a specific project kit be available? We are live!
We will be at the NY Maker Faire from September 20-21st at the New York Hall of Science. We will have our board and projects on display, and might even have a few giveaways. There will be thousands of other makers there showing off their cool projects too, so get tickets now!
The title says it all. We will be giving a webinar on August 20th on the Element 14 community site. We will go over the use of various features of the board, along with showing some of our projects live. Hope to see you there! Update: The recording of the webinar is now up for […]
