This Saturday, we are hosting an event in celebration of International Nodebot day.

We will be building little sumobots using lasercut frames and simple electronics powered by Arduino and the Johnny-Five javascript library.  When we finish our bots, we will test them out in the sumo ring!

Last meeting, we created Dodge, a video game where you move your dinosaur out of the way of falling rocks.

In this meeting, we will be creating a game similar to Flappy Bird, Pitfall and Defender, or for the modern among us, Geometry Dash.  This one is called Platformer.

Come join us on May 20 at 11a at our Club Garage!

You can see a playable demo version here:

It's Sumobot fighting time!!

Originally posted for Facebook, this shows the simplebot using the Captain Arguino Arduino board from www.podpi.com being controlled via AJFisher's UDP transparent bridge to Johnny-five over Adafruit Industries' ESP8266 "Huzzah" development board.

This design was adapted from Andrew Fisher's article in Make: JavaScript Robotics by Rick Waldron & Backstop Media.

I control the bot using W, A, S, D.

Hi Club Members!

This is one way to build the replacement gauge for Servo's Dashboard.

Please ensure that you have the appropriate materials before you start this challenge.  Materials such as: Scissors, x acto knife, glue/cement, some cardboard or plastic and either some colored pens/pencils or a color printer and some software will be helpful.  I used Microsoft Excel and a color printer for this, but you can use anything you like!
