FlowPaw on TV @ Embedded World

DSPRobotics CEO Carl Owen explains a little about the FlowPaw education board, based on the STM32 Microprocessor using the MikroElektonika Click Boards,  and how it fits to the market.

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.

FlowPaw @ BETT 2015

We’ve just returned from the BETT education show in London where we were demoing FlowPaw together with our UK distributors Rapid Electronics:

FlowPaw Bett Show 2015

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!

FlowPaw Click Packs are Here!

FlowPaw Balancing Robot

We have made a mini balancing robot similar to the famous Segway (TM) using the FlowPaw board and the Accelerometer, Gyro, & Bluetooth click/claws.FPSegway5

FlowPawClaws LR

We used the FlowStone programming language to send the values for the PID maths and display the sensor and PID values on screen.FlowPawSegway4We 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.

Kickstarter Success!

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:
