Adafruit customer, Joachim Amoah wrote this very cool android app to send data via a wireless protocol (Bluetooth, xbee, or wifi) to control a toy rover.
In my previous posts we have seen RCcontroller connect via bluetooth or socketIO but we did not control something cool. This time, we are going to take things to a new level. We will control a little rover with RCcontroller. I don’t talk too much so let’s get started.
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.
