Invisible Highway with the Feather Bluetooth LE Mini Robot #AR #robotics @google
Invisible Highway is an experiment started by Google Creative Labs to control real life electronics by drawing destination points in AR. In this video, a user draws a pathway on a horizontal surface then the robot car follows the pathway on that surface. Does this robot car look familiar? It’s our Feather Bluetooth LE Mini Robot!
Originally prototyped by Anna Fusté and Judith Amores from the MIT Media Lab, the two researchers who worked with Google Creative Lab over the summer to experiment with AR and developing new and meaningful interaction models with our environment. Google then brought on global design and experience studio Jam3, to design and build out the concept, and add dynamic functionality that would seamlessly meld the physical and digital worlds.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
