FlowPaw was one of the main features at the Raspberry Pi Jam/Hackathon at the National STEM center in York on Saturday. Carl Owen CEO of DSPRobotics did a ‘Big Talk’ on FlowPaw & FlowStone in the main lecture theater as well as demoing FlowPaw connected to FlowStone and the Raspberry Pi in the demo area.
It was a very busy day with hundreds of people in attendance and FlowPaw was a big hit with people literally queuing all day to get a closer look!
We had the new FlowPaw Bluetooth wireless Rover whizzing around he floor avoiding obstacles controlled from FlowStone, FlowPaw controlling an robot Arm from LynxMotion via Raspberry Pi using a Python Script. A cool Pan-Tilt Webcam controlled via the servo outs with the webcam video displayed in FlowStone, even a software musical synthesizer controlled from the proximity and accelerometer sensors and a DMX disco light!
People were amazed how easy it was to program in FlowStone!
