The 2nd blog about #BlackgangPi is now online at featuring #dinosaurs #RaspberryPi #nodered #sugru…

The Blackgang team, under the tutelage of @andysc wrote an application on the Pi to trigger the different motors and the roar sound file when an input was received from the motion sensor. Andy said “I was very proud to take this group of non-programmers, and watch them choreograph a sequence of operations using the pre-existing building blocks in Node-RED .” He admitted that getting the LED’s to come on and off had been quite trivial, and the group quickly took to Node-RED , rearranging the flow, adding trigger nodes and delays to get an integrated application. The only coding they required was the development of some “random” code to randomise the movements – so the dinosaur would move differently each time the sensor was triggered.
