Arva Syed: In this project we are using micro:bits to program GiggleBots. Since micro:bits use Microsoft MakeCode (a language new to me) I needed to test out how the code would translate to motion in the bot.
first I started simple with just going forward.
Upon uploading it into the bot and taping on a pen I learned that 1000 ms=9.5 in. of line drawn. This means that each inch drawn equates to about 105 milliseconds
From this info I tried to diagram a pattern and switch from terms of inches to terms of milliseconds. so that I could code this pattern.
Here is how I attempted to code this pattern:
Upon testing it the outcome was far different than what I imagined.
The line turned out to be much more wavy than the sharp lines I had expected. Next I am going to try making a pattern that is much more wavy like this:
Then I will work my way up to more complicated patterns.
Well, that it for now!
