These days people are more connected than ever however we are experiencing less and less physical interaction with each other. One day while giving my dog T-Bone a scratch behind the ears I came up with this silly idea. A robot which can give your dog a pat on the head and than reward him with a tasty treat and best of all the dog can also reciprocate the same attention. It is called the “IOT Robot People/Pet Affectionator”. While this demo is not utilizing IOT (Internet of Things) it would be very easy to construct two of these and network them across the internet. In this project I am utilizing an Arduino Nano, two H-Bridge motor drivers, two geared Pittman motors and two geared hobby motors. . My three nieces Kyra, Hailey and Lauren are madly in love with our dog T-Bone and they want him to star in his very own YouTube video.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
