I admit I’m still in recovery from the shame brought about by my performance at a recent holiday cookie decorating party, which may be why this project from JKBrickworks looks so magical to me.
I have put together building instructions for the EV Icer, along with the program file for running it, but be sure to read the operation notes below! The icing results can vary drastically depending on many factors. When everything goes according to plan it actually works quite well. All of the cookies in the picture at the end of the post were iced using the machine. To build the EV Icer you only need the LEGO Mindstorms retail set number 31313.
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.
