The iHackRobot Global Classroom

This is the Global Classroom and Laboratory website of  iHackRobot. On this site, you will find the links of all the lessons, codes, projects and apps that I have developed.  Some of these sketches and gadgets can be used to control various appliances in the house by means of a smartphone, tablet, bluetooth, Infrared, joystick, accelerometer, wifi, your own webpage via the internet, and even by a watch. To prove that these projects are possible, videos, source codes, schematics, and materials are incorporated all together in one place for you to study, build and experiment. A generic android app that I also developed will also be provided upon request. This app controls any of your robotics projects via your smatphone or tablet.



iHackApps 
are applications integrated to your iHackRobot arduino projects. One application, the first one in the picture, is an app that can control any projects in your arduino portfolio. Just like in the video, it can turn an led On and OFF. This app is yours for FREE. You just need to request the APKcode by sending an email to me at JBWylzan at gmail dot com.

The app in the second picture is also FREE. It  talks when you press a button. It also gets mad when you shake it. When you tap the dog's nose, it will meow instead of bark. And when you tilt the phone, the ladybug will move on the screen. As a bonus, just send me your picture and I will replace my dog's photo with your picture.All these apps are not yet on Google Play Store.


iKIM
iKIM, which stands for inverse Kinesthetic Intelligent Machine, is another simple electronic prototype that you will build to simulate projects using the ARDUINO microcontroller.  iKIM becomes MIKe, a Machine of Inverse Kinematics with an x degree of freedom (xDOF) as you progress to robotics.

The iMachine is entirely being utilized in all 10 arduino projects for beginners. The basic prototype is  made up of only four electronic components: resistors, leds, wires and the Arduino board. And the best part, the 10 projects can be programmed using only 3 commands: pinmode, digitalwrite and delay. The pinmode() is a command used to setup the pin of your choice. The digitalwrite() is for turning on and off led lights. The delay() command is for counting the time of the led to turn On and Off. These three commands are called Sketches in the arduino language. Building the machine doesn't require complex programming nor messy soldering.


iHackRobots
Once you master controlling outputs, harnessing your inputs - using temperature, pressure, distance, electromagnetism, sound, light, and even through the wave movement of your hand - becomes second nature. All these skills will take you to program tiny controllers that will help you build stand alone robots and other electronic toys. Since this is an R&D site, I also compiled some sketches here from other programmers in the arduino community that you might use for reference purposes. Just make sure to give credit to whom credit is due.

The 10 Arduino Projects for Beginners:
1. Switching Lights
2. Blinking Lights
3. Running Lights
4. Chasing Lights
5. Marching Lights
6. Dividing Lights
7. Testing Lights
8. Thinking Lights
9. Counting Lights
10. Warning Lights

These projects can be found at  My Hackspace Projects .

As a starter ... your first project is to turn on all 9 leds on our prototype.


Here are some more projects you will learn on this classroom.














As our welcome impression of the classical program "Hello World", we say ...

"Let There Be Lights!".
