VEXMAS – A VEX(tm) shield for the Arduino prototyping platform

Vexmas-Small

VEXMAS is a VEX(tm) shield for the Arduino prototyping platform. Adam writes –

In order to make VEX robotics more affordable/interesting for the classroom environment, my friend/co-worker and I have created an Arduino shield that creates an interface to all of the VEX components, including RF and also adds an H-Bridge for DC motors. Chuck delaCuesta and myself are both Technology Education teachers and are always working to improving the classroom learning environment through new technology. We have created a Google Code page to make our source and designs publicly available.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Very neat! Too bad I don’t have a VEX kit handy…
