Arduino Laser Turret Made with XOD Visual Programming Environment | #arduino #ide @xodlang
This is a simple pan-tilt project from Afrotechmods that is a good example of how to use the XOD visual IDE to program an Arduino Uno to drive a servo motor:
A tutorial on what servos are, how they work, and how to use them. Then I build a laser turret using a pan-tilt servo kit and an Arduino Uno. The Arduino is programmed with XOD, a free visual programming language.
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.
