Cyber: bot combines Python, circuit building, and cybersecurity
Cyber:bot combines Python, circuit building, and cybersecurity with a tangible hardware dimension to science, CTE, and cybersecurity programs. Cyber:bot was developed as a cooperative project between cyber.org and Parallax.com. The cyber:bot merges a micro:bit with the Parallax small robot form factor that’s a proven STEM success in classrooms.
Gripper 3.0 for small robots
Designed by a mechanical engineer who studied on Parallax robots at NYU-Tandon School of Engineering and manufactured on our CNC machines in Rocklin, California, the Gripper 3.0 is a precise, smooth-action, single-servo grab-and-lift actuator.
Compatible with the Boe-Bot, Shield-Bot for Arduino, cyber:bot, and ActivityBot 360. Add a Laser Ping, Ping))) Ultrasonic Sensor, RFID or ColorPal sensors to locate and identify objects.
Cybersecurity: Radio Data
Cybersecurity: Radio Data tutorial posted. The approach is similar to how apps and servers exchange data, with packets containing key-value pairs. Thanks to MicroPython’s dictionary and string features, this easy and powerful technique takes just a couple lines
