This marks the 18th FlowStone workshop fetured in the magazine so far, where we show beginners how to code robotics using the FlowStone programming Language.
FlowPaw was on the BBC today!
Featured on the CBBC kids science program Technobabble (episode 19 – Computing):
DSPRobotics were recently guest speakers at Embedded World in Germany on the ST Micro and Conrad stands, where they showcased the new FlowPaw Microprocessor board (based on STM32) and FlowStone programming language aimed at education and rapid prototyping.
What was interesting this year was the number of people coming on the stand looking for programming tools for the classroom that just worked (having failed going down the Raspberry Pi & Arduino routes). There were quite a few shocked faces when they saw FlowPaw for the first time!
Great News – The new Click Packs for the FlowPaw Claws arrived today!
The cool thing about our Click Packs it that all of the pins are pre-soldered and ready to use out of the box!
There are two different versions:
7 Segment Dispaly
SpeakUp Voice Recognition
RFID card reader
These are now in stock and avaliable to order Here
We’ve uploaded some new FlowStone STEM software and FlowPaw firmware.
Go to the bottom of this page to get your software updater: Here
In this new version your FlowPaw now supports more Click boards:
8×8 Led Display
7 Segment Display
SpeakUp voice Recognition
Also the new Balancing Bot PID function (like a Segway TM)

The guys at Micro Mart Magazine have just written a comprehensive review of FlowPaw, click on the image below to read the full pdf:
We used the FlowStone programming language to send the values for the PID maths and display the sensor and PID values on screen.We also made a new DSP module that runs the PID etc. on the FlowPaw hardware, we then just send the PID tuning values from FlowStone to the FlowPaw via the Bluetooth wireless connection.
And a short video:
Our Kickstarter campaign has now completed and we’re incredibly pleased to say that we got all our funding and some more on top!
It’ll take a week or two for the funding to reach us but as soon as it does we’ll be sending out the very first batch of FlowPaw kits. To say we’re excited is an understatement
To all our amazing backers:
