Tanglebots

Tanglebots are prototype weaving robots - for more info see here. This workshop was funded by AHRC Digital Transformations and the British Science Association

Parts list

Some colour printed tanglebots for beginners guides.

This repository includes Scratch API code for access to Pimoroni Explorer Hat capacitive touch buttons as sensor inputs.

Installing

  • Get the pimoroni explorer hat python api: curl get.pimoroni.com/explorerhat | bash

Copy tanglebots scratch stuff (I should write a script for this, but this is a bit safer):

  • sudo mkdir /opt/scratch_tanglebots
  • sudo cp scratch/* /opt/scratch_tanglebots/
  • cp scratch/tanglebots.sb /home/pi/Documents/Scratch\ Projects/
  • cp scratch_tanglebots.desktop /home/pi/Desktop

Debugging

  • Test the example script it loads automatically, which should flash the LED's
  • Run /opt/scratch_tanglebots/scratch_tanglebots.sh in a console to see output from python
