The Hummingbird Robotics Kit allows students to create and program robots, kinetic sculptures and animatronics, built out of a combination of electronic components and crafting materials. A product of the Carnegie Mellon University CREATE Lab, Hummingbird is designed to inspire and enable creative engineering, robotics, and making activities for ages 13 and up (8 with adult supervision).
Combined with very easy-to-use software environments like Scratch, Snap!, the CREATE Lab Visual Programmer, and Ardublock, Hummingbird provides a great way to introduce kids to robotics and engineering with construction materials that they are already familiar with. At the same time, Hummingbird continues to provide new challenges by allowing programming in the Arduino environment, Python, Java, and Processing, and by supporting Raspberry Pi.
The Hummingbird Duo Base kit has everything you need to build a robot, just add craft materials!
This kit has everything you need to set up your interactive maker project. Easily and quickly add lights and sensors to school projects, models and art installations. There are enough connecting wires and LEDs for 2 projects, depending on how many LEDs you use in each project.
The HyperDuino can control a maximum of 12 LEDs and watch 12 touch sensors in any one project. However some projects may use less than these quantities, so you’ll have some available for additional projects. The components can also be reused many times. The HyperDuino can be used with any operating system and device that supports the Chrome browser and the Arduino. Windows users will have to install the USB Arduino driver.
For software, you can use the HyperDuino for Chrome app, download instructions for which are included in the HyperDuino package. The HyperDuino system also works with other software such as iForge, ArduBlock, Arduino IDE, Firmata Test, HyperStudio, mBlock, Scratch for Arduino, ScratchX for Arduino, Snap4Arduino, Wyliodrin, and others.
The HyperDuino shield is now in its 2nd generation version with many improvements, including 12 true touch sensors and other features.
