Physical Etoys Problem

Christine Murakami

Hi again, everyone! Thank you for all the continued work with Etoys. It continues to be well-used here at Columbus School for Girls, and a great source of ongoing learning for girls of all ages!

 

I have another question for you all that stumps me. I’ve asked a student to try to work with Physical Etoys so that we could have another tool for our teaching endeavors. We purchased a robot kit from Micro Center, she put it all together, and now is having problems getting it to work with Physical Etoys. I asked her to draft a message for you. Her message is below.

 

Any help or suggestions you can give her will be greatly appreciated! Let us know if you need photos or additional information.

 

Keep up the good work! Lots of us rely on you when we get stuck! Thank you!

I am trying to use Physical Etoys in order to control an A002 Letry Robot. I have connected the robot to the computer using a USB Cord, but Physical Etoys does not recognize that anything is connected. However, when I do connect them, the light on the USB port connected to the breadboard on the robot does come on. I am not sure what I am doing wrong, or if the USB port I am using that is connected to the breadboard is compatible with Physical Etoys as an Arduino. In addition, which kind of Arduino board type would this be considered? Physical Etoys asks this in the viewer for the Arduino, but I am not sure which one I have.

Hi Hannah, Chirstine:

My two cents:

           You can to check a list of supported hardware here, in the official page.

You can see that your robot is not in the list. But maybe not all is lost. If your A002 Letry  robot is equivalent to an Arduino board, you just need to open the arduino ide, and verify the configuration that allows the LED 13 to blink. Some operating systems will are able to detect some of the latest Arduino boards (w7 for example, tells me that detect a arduino leonardo and immediately download the necessary drivers.)

Cheers
