RoboBrrd won the Cloud Robotics Hackathon 2012

RoboBrrd won the Cloud Robotics Hackathon 2012 .

These cheerleading robots were created for an educational math game that can post the scores on MyRobots, then display them on a robotic scoreboard. 

“When Learning Pet (blue RoboBrrd) receives the data from the app, it also broadcasts the message out through its Xbee to the other two robots. We use the XBee Network Protocol for this.

Both Impy (orange RoboBrrd) and MANOI receive this data through their XBees, and are able to act out the actions as well. When you get the answer right, they do a little action of encouragement (MANOI swings its arms, RoboBrrds flap their wings, and Impy changes its eyes green too). When you get the answer wrong, they shake their heads- MANOI looks really scary doing this so you don’t want to get the answer wrong. When you level up, they all do a crazy dance celebration.”
