  • Ardunio tweetbotUK hacker Ken Lim encourages everyone to start building their own robot army, one robot at a time.Ken built the robot here called the Guardian Robot.  This robot uses an Arduino as it’s brain and monitors your Twitter account.If the tweets coming in are happy it raises its hand to give you a high five, if they are sad it lowers its head.If you high five the robot back or give it a hug when it is sad, it will then send out an appropriate tweet.  There are 2 switches that you actually push.  One switch is on its hand and and another is on its stomach.

    • 12. Why not an Arduino?
      Smarter design (simple hardware)
      Prototyping area
      Designed to teach soldering
    • 13. Getting Started
      What to do first?
    • 14. Getting Started – Blinking LED
      Turns on an LED on for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly.
      This example code is in the public domain.
      void setup() {
      // initialize the digital pin as an output.
      // Pin 13 has an LED connected on most Arduino boards:
      pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
      void loop() {
      digitalWrite(13, HIGH); // set the LED on
      delay(1000); // wait for a second
      digitalWrite(13, LOW); // set the LED off
      delay(1000); // wait for a second
