Reflection


I think the hardest part was the coding, because it was mainly all trial and error. It did get a little frustrating but I over came it by looking at the worksheets for help and asking questions. I still want to improve my coding skills and see how far I can take them, like coding bigger games or harder instructions for robots, I want to grow my knowledge in robotics a bit further than I have this semester. I think we did really well with this and I am proud of how it turned out.

Reflection - colour sensor


What did you learn? What did you get/understand?
I understand how to program the sensor to sense a colour and say it out loud. I really enjoyed programming it and Sharing it. My favourite part was testing it.

What challenges did you face? What did you do to try and work them out?
sometimes it would not track the colours or not say the colour but we figured it out with trial and error. we had to try a couple of times to finally get it right.

What is missing? what do you still have to learn?
I still need to learn how to make the robot to say the right colour.

Voki reflection

When I used voki I like how you could pick a type of person and didn't have to create everything yourself but I believe its also its down fall as you could not personalise it as much as I would've liked too. I think it should add some more features to the website so the user can get the most out of their time using it.

Voki is a fun type of creator, I liked that we could choose a design that was already made but I think  that's also their downside, you couldn't make it as person as you'd like. I also liked the colour change in everything (hair, lips, eyes, ect.)
This shows me as a family member. I believe this is how my family sees me. I am a fun but responsible, I tend to make sure everyone is okay. I am usually quiet around most of my family but around some others i am quite loud.

My Blue Robot
This is me in my dance group, I'm serious with my dance but also carefree and casual among my friends. I try to be as focused as much as I can during sessions.
I liked using My Blue Robot as it was something fun to mess aroudn with as it had many cool features like the hair styles and colour.

I liked this webpage as you could personalise it more, with hairstyle and clothing. i love anime so that gives me another reason to like it.
i think this is how my friends see me. just a quiet but happy person who has a lugh when they want too.

Reflection

Today we experimented with the touch sensor. We had made the robot turn on using the touch sensor and we also made it stop when the sensor was hit. This was really fun to play with and program though it was a little frustrating because of all the trail and error.

Robot programming

Square:

Circle:

I think the circle was perfect, but I believe we need to tweak the degrees it turns at. I think in the future I would try to play more with the shapes and focus on turns.
