S4A: Scratch modification for Arduino


Scratch for Arduino (S4A) is a modified version of Scratch, ready to interact with Arduino boards.

Supported boards
S4A works with Arduino Diecimila, Duemilanove and Uno. Other boards haven't been tested, but they may also work.

Components have to be connected in a particular way. S4A allows for 6 analog inputs (analog pins), 2 digital inputs (digital pins 2 and 3), 3 analog outputs (digital pins 5, 6 and 9), 3 digital outputs (pins 10, 11 and 13) and 4 special outputs to connect Parallax continuous rotation servomotors (digital pins 4, 7, 8 and 12).

You can manage a board wirelessly by attaching an RF module to it, such as Xbee.

S4A allows you to control as many boards as USB ports you have.

S4A is backwards compatible with Scratch, so you can open Scratch projects in it. However, you won't be able to share your projects on the Scratch community website because doing so goes against the Scratch terms of use.

Take in account that this compatibility doesn't work both ways, so you won't be able to open an S4A project from within the original Scratch.

Using a PicoBoard along with an Arduino board is also supported... cont'd

Nippon Pulse Geared Stepper Motors, High Torque in Small Package

A feature of Nippon Pulse's popular and reliable stepper motors, which we have been manufacturing since 1960, is the ability to add reduction gearheads. These gearheads have a wide range of ratios, from 1/400 to 6/25. In all, there are over 20 different gear ratios to choose from, depending on the motor size.

New HPF Hollow Shaft Planetary Gear from Harmonic Drive®

The new HPF Precision Hollow Shaft Planetary Gear from Harmonic Drive® was designed based on the popular HPG Harmonic Planetary® gearhead. The large coaxial hollow shaft allows cables, shafts, ball screws or lasers to pass directly through the axis of rotation. The HPF also incorporates a large output flange for mounting the driven load.

The Poppy Project

The Poppy Project:

Both software and hardware are available under an open source licence for academics, artists and geeks.

Poppy only uses off-the-shelf components (motors and electronics) and limbs that can be printed with regular 3D printing services.

Poppy’s body has a morphology modeling human skeleton: bended legs, multi-articulated trunk, soft body. This increases robustness, agility and stability during the walking.

The overall materials needed to build your own Poppy robot costs around 7500€ ($10500, including motors, electronics and 3D printed parts). We hope the community will find ways to build and use even cheaper solutions.

Festo's Inspiring Solutions to Achieve More Efficient Mechatronic Solutions

Users often select drive technology - pneumatic or electric - over hastily and on the basis of experience alone. In order to identify the most energy-efficient automation solution, however, a technology-neutral comparison is required. This is exactly the approach that Festo takes to achieve the most efficient mechatronic solutions for its customers.
