Unlocking creativity through IoT and Robotics.
The IoT/Robotics Builder gives Teachers, Students and Makers the ability to build apps that can control the AppShed IoT Board. With this, users can quickly and easily create IoT projects that are controlled right from their app.
- Learners start by wiring up their circuit
- Next steps include app building, events, actions and data handling
- Finally, Learners pair their circuit to their app and test it out.
How It Works
The AppShed IoT/Robotics Builder bridges the gap between physical circuit and digital app development education. Allowing everyone to create IoT enabled apps to control circuits and robots of their design.
Make Your Own
While the prebuilt kits make it easier for teachers and students to get started, we want to ensure that everyone gets a chance to use the AppSheds IoT platform even if they don't have our kits. That's why we created a downloadable firmware that allows you to turn widely available and cheap microcontrollers into AppShed Ready IoT Boards. As of right now we support ESP8266 boards of the most kind and recommend the NODE MCU for use with our firmware. We have a detailed video and lesson explaining how to load the AppShed Firmware onto these blank boards here. The firmware can be downloaded bellow of accessed from our GitHub here.
