Arduino and LEGO Projects by Jon Lazar

By Jon Lazar

We all know the way notable LEGO is, and increasingly more everyone is gaining knowledge of what percentage outstanding stuff you can do with Arduino. In Arduino and LEGO Projects, Jon Lazar exhibits you the way to mix of the best issues on the earth to make enjoyable instruments like a Magic Lantern RF reader, a sensor-enabled LEGO tune field, or even an Arduino-controlled LEGO educate set.

  • Learn that SNOT is de facto cool (it capacity Studs now not on best)
  • See distinctive reasons and photographs of ways every little thing matches jointly
  • Learn how Arduino suits into each one undertaking, together with code and causes

Whether you must provoke your folks, annoy the cat, or simply relax and indulge in the awesomeness of your creations, Arduino and LEGO Projects indicates you simply what you would like and the way to place all of it jointly.

Example text

The Android’s body is made of concentric circles that rest atop each other, with a dome for the head. The arms and legs are made of smaller circular rings that are attached to the main body. Start with the Foundation Since the Android is round and LEGO bricks are not, you need to accommodate this by building into as round a shape as you can with the bricks. This is done by having a four stud side and having a two brick spacing to create a step pattern. You also have a brace four bricks wide running through the bottom of the Android to support the legs and the Arduino when you install them (Figure 2-8).

When Google introduced their mobile operating system known as Android, they created a mascot to represent it. The little green robot became synonymous with the cell phones and tablets on which the operating system was installed. You are going to create this Android mascot and make him react to his environment. He will be able to “see” what is going on around him and turn to look when things get close within a 180 degree field of view. A list of the parts in this chapter can be found in the appendix.

Figure 2-26. A layer of tiles is added to allow smooth movement of the head and to support the servo motor 48 Chapter 2 ■ Using Sensors with the Android Building the Head With the core body done, the next step is the head. Like the roundness of the body was approximated by stepping the LEGO bricks, the head is a dome that is created using bricks. The first level of the head is similar to the first layer of the Android body; the levels above it recede to give it a roundness. The base of the head does have a thicker ring than the body to allow the narrowing rings to layer on top of it (see Figure 2-27).
