The iHackRobot Global Classroom

This is the  iHackRobot Global Classroom and Laboratory website. On this site, you will find the links, tutorials, codes, projects and apps that the author has developed.  Sketches and gadgets were programmed and build to control various appliances in the house using  a smartphone, tablet, bluetooth, Infrared, joystick, accelerometer, wifi, your webpage via the internet, voice recognition, and even by a watch. To make these projects,  videos, source codes, schematics, and materials are incorporated all together in one place for you to study, build and experiment. Some generic android apps are also provided upon request. These apps can control any of your robotics projects using a smatphone or tablet.

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. It can turn an led On and OFF using your smartphone. This app is yours for FREE.

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.

 The app, in the third picture, is also FREE. It can control any of your arduino projects using speech or voice recognition. However, all these apps are not yet on Google Play Store due to budget constrain. If you need one of them, request the APKcode by sending me an email at JBWylzan at gmail dot com.

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.

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 Arduino Sketchbook .

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!".
