The new drone is called the Robomaster Tello Talent, or Robomaster TT. The $239 drone falls under the wing of DJI’s newly established Education division, which works closely with schools to promote STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). The company says the new product maintains all the features that made the Tello so popular, but has a new board that adds on a ton of new capabilities. And, of course, the capabilities are truly unlocked when you start coding.
The TT is equipped with a powerful ESP32 microcontroller board to provide Arduino and MicroPython open-source coding platforms … MicroPython … Students can see their coding come to life, by writing custom codes to change the colors and flash frequency of the TT’s programmable RGB 256 all-color LED light or create simple shapes, animations and letter scrolling effects on the 8X8 Red and Blue LED dot matrix screen fitted on the TT.
With an improved 5.8 WiFi module, users can connect drones and program a swarm to perform pre- programmed synchronized missions. For a more in-depth experience, advanced students can program the swarm to fly custom maneuvers and formations with simple coding languages such as … Python using the new swarm software.
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.
