Hello people of the internet! Today I have made my robot Blu (or more commonly known as Dot) into a controller for Kuazie (or more commonly known as Dash) using Blockly.
There is a basic way, which controls the movement of Kuazie, and a more advanced way, which controls the movement and head rotation of Kuazie.
Here are some images of the code.
The basic version uses Blu’s rotation to move Kuazie. For instance, if Blu leans forward, Kuazie will move forward. Same with back, left, and right. The advanced way uses the buttons on Blu to move Kuazie, and the rotation of Blu for the head control. Here is a little diagram so you can understand the advanced way a bit easier :

This blog and the it’s components were part of Aiden’s 5th grade homeschool lessons. Aiden’s lessons revolved around and incorporated his passion for technology, robots and programming languages. At this time this post was written, Aiden had been working with Dash, Dot, and the Wonder Workshop programming Apps for about a year.
