Today, I “got my feet wet” with Romibo programming. It took a couple of hours to setup the IDE, skim through the libraries, and write a few small programs. My first task was to make Romibo “wiggle”, blink, and “chirp” when you pet it. Using the three touch sensors on its frame, I was able to sense when a user touched Romibo’s head. I altered a demo program to make it bob its head and sway. Now, I am working on adding a Chirp sound to the SD card contained in the Romibo and randomly playing it when the switches are triggered. From what I’ve seen so far, it seems like a great platform for me to learn and make improvements!
