Small Basic - Hardware Story
It's time for us to shout on a rooftop and proclaim all the wonderful hardware capabilities that you're going to find in Small Basic!
Today we're highlighting four powerful capabilities:
- Lego Mindstorms EV3
- Kinect for Windows
- Oculus Rift
Let's get started!
1. Lego Mindstorms EV3
Our support here goes way beyond the capability to program on Lego Mindstorms EV3. Because Small Basic is a learning language, you can learn professional programming while you command your robots! In addition, EV3 Basic is the only great solution for taking EV3 units into actual programming and a learning language... that's free!
Read more here, and download the EV3 Basic extension:
Finally, as if all that isn't enough, EV3 Basic lets you take your robots to the next level, where you can get more control over sound, better variable handling, the ability create UI-based apps and games to interact through, with the robots, synchronized wheel motions, Ease-In and Ease-Out on your motion for the motors, Bluetooth/Wifi support, and simply robots that move faster!
2. Kinect for Windows
Small Basic 1.2 included Kinect for Windows in the core library! Learn about the different capabilities here:
In this blog post, LitDev explains how to use his extension to program on Arduino:
4. Oculus Rift
This Oculus SB extension comes from Zock77:
Please check out these different hardware capabilities! We hope to add more hardware solutions in the future, so if you find yourself playing with Small Basic on Raspberry Pi or another hardware solution, please let us know!
Thank you for stopping. Bye!
