Sensor Sense | - Supporting the #UKEdChat Education Community - 10 views

    A great Android app which shows you the many readouts of the sensors on your device. Use them in science, geography and more.

Lifelong Kindergarten :: MIT Media Lab - 4 views

    "Crickets are small programmable devices that can make things spin, light up, and play music. You can plug lights, motors, and sensors into a Cricket, then write computer programs to tell them how to react and behave. With Crickets, you can create musical sculptures, interactive jewelry, dancing creatures, and other artistic inventions -- and learn important math, science, and engineering ideas in the process. Crickets are based on more than a decade of NSF-funded educational research. Lifelong Kindergarten researchers collaborated with the LEGO company to create the first "programmable bricks," squeezing computational power into LEGO bricks. This research led to the LEGO MindStorms robotics kits, now used by millions of people around the world. While LEGO MindStorms is designed especially for making robots, Crickets are designed especially for making artistic creations. Crickets were refined in collaboration with the Playful Invention and Exploration (PIE) museum network, and are now sold as a product through the Playful Invention Company (PICO)."

    Finger Battle: cómo jugar y destrozar la pantalla de tu móvil a la vez → El dado de toda la vida, versión tecnológica: DICE+ DICE+ es un dado con el peso y tacto de los de toda la vida, pero con alma digital: basta lanzarlo para que los sensores sepan cuál es el número que ha elegido el azar y lo transmita vía Bluetooth al teléfono móvil, la tableta o el ordenador.

App Inventor for Android - 42 views

    You can build just about any app you can imagine with App Inventor. Often people begin by building games like WhackAMole or games that let you draw funny pictures on your friend's faces. You can even make use of the phone's sensors to move a ball through a maze based on tilting the phone. But app building is not limited to simple games. You can also build apps that inform and educate. You can create a quiz app to help you and your classmates study for a test. With Android's text-to-speech capabilities, you can even have the phone ask the questions aloud. To use App Inventor, you do not need to be a developer. App Inventor requires NO programming knowledge. This is because instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app's behavior.
    WOW! Very Scratch-like UI for programming Android mobile apps!!
