Thanks to Stephanie for sending in her student project! Read more about the project here.
The Bend and Snap Tutorial Bag is not only a handy mechanism for visualizing and understanding state management in coding, but a tool to help you unleash your femininity à la Elle Woods.
State 0: Inactive.
State 1: Spot a man. Drop bag. “Bend…” LEDs light up directing user what to do. (If the next step is not reached, the bag returns to its inactive state.)
State 2: Bend over and grab handle of bag… and snap! The flex sensor in the handle activates the words “and Snap.”
State 3: If completed successfully, three exclamation points activate. You have successfully completed the Bend and Snap Tutorial.
You can accessorize the Bend and Snap Tutorial Bag. I had fun with the project and made a Fendi-inspired Karl doll for the bag. As Elle Woods teaches us, there’s no need to sacrifice your fashion sense and style when power dressing.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
