THE DANCE OF KAA / Dancing Kaa, hypnotized monkeys

Programming level 1

Monkey troop and dancing Kaa

P1

How to build

Monkey troop and dancing Kaa - "A" version

  • The monkey troop is a group of built-up figures mounted on axles, with a design suitable for puppetry.
  • Kaa is mounted on 1 DC motor and its body sections are turned by axles.
  • The DC motor plugs directly into the attached battery holder, so Kaa á moves from on to off without programming.

Monkey troop and dancing Kaa - "B" version

  • The monkeys are the same structure as in a.).
  • Kaa is a moving figure with 2 red LEDs mounted on a robotic base.
  • Kaa ‘s program starts automatically, his forward progress echoes the serpentine motion characteristic of snakes with rapid changes of direction,
  • The LEDs are lit all the time.

How to build

Kaa on the ground and in the tree - "A" version

The monkey troop all the way, as in P1.

  • Kaa ‘s program is triggered by pressing 1 Touch sensor.
  • Movement as in P1/b), but the LEDs flash.

Kaa on the ground and in the tree - "B" version

The monkey troop all the way, as in P1.

  • Kaa  hangs from a large tree and has a servo motor built into one of its body sections, which is connected to the tree.
  • 1 Touch sensor starts Kaa ‘s program and he swings on the tree branch
  • The LEDs at the eyes flash while the robot moves, indicating hypnosis.

How to build

Monkey troop

  • The monkey troop is equipped with 1-1 servo motors for 1-1 actor, 1 IR Photoreflector and 1 green LED.
  • The two monkeys, which can be moved by servo motors, when 1 IR photoreflector detects Kaa, turn and the green LED flashes to indicate hypnotisation.

Kaa

  • Kaa is mounted on a robot base with 2 DC motors,
  • 2 red LEDs on the head with 2 eyes
  • Controlled by a console with 4 touch sensors, it moves in 4 directions
  • This way the robot can be directed in front of the monkey team, which triggers the monkeys to move.
  • Each direction has a different LED light/flash/off programmed.

Dancing snake, hypnotised monkeys

How to build

Monkey troop

  • The monkey team is equipped with 2 IR photoreflectors, 1 green LED and 1 servo motor for each of the 3 monkeys.
  • The three monkeys, which can be moved by servo motors, turn simultaneously in the direction in which they face the IR sensor.

Kaa

  • Kaa is still built on 2 robotic bases with DC motors, with 2 red LEDs at its eyes.
  • His program starts automatically, the 2 red LEDs light up while he moves forward. At the front, pointing downwards, there is 1 IR photoreflector, which detects the black stripe, the robot stops, the LEDs turn off.
  • Randomly turns left or right until one of the IR photoreflectors is placed on the monkey team.
  • When Kaa , stops, the monkeys turn in the direction of the sensor and the green LED starts blinking.
