FlowPaw at the National STEM centre Pi Jam/Hackathon

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!

This USB HID programmable board has a 'mikro Bus' socket for any of the 70+  Click interface boards.

We have created various example projects including FlowStone projects .hex firmware files as well as the source code in C++ for the board.

These can be found here:

IR Temp sensor

7 Segment Display

3 Axis Accelerometer

Relay Board

RS485 to DMX 512 (disco light protocol)

Each has a FlowStone example similar to this:

There is also an example that turns the bare board into a FlowBoard mini DAQ!
