Selected Fun Programs

E2-ExploreWalls (with Treads and Ultrasonic Sensor)
Multi-Bot will wander around the room trying to avoid walls.
E6-MagicPush4 (with Ultrasonic Sensor rear mounted)
Mount the Ultrasonic Sensor to Multi-Bot's rear bumper pointing backwards, and then your hand will appear to push Multi-Bot along with an invisible repulsive force.
E9-FindShoot (with Treads, Ultrasonic Sensor and Ball Shooter Arm)
Place an empty soda can or water bottle anywhere near Multi-Bot in any direction, in an open area of the floor, and Multi-Bot will find the container and shoot it down by firing a ball at it.
F9-CountPress (with Touch Sensors as wired remote)
A contest on the NXT to see how many times you can press a touch sensor in one second. How fast can you press?
F13-DriveShoot (with Touch Sensors remote and Ball Shooter Arm)
A sophisticated two touch sensor remote control that let you control Multi-Bot with the following actions:
1. Press and hold the left button to turn left
2. Press and hold the right button to turn right
3. Press and hold both button to go forward
4. Tap the left button to back up, tap again to stop
5. Tap the right button to shoot a ball
6. Release both buttons to stop
F14-Golfer (with Touch Sensors remote and Golfing Arm)
A remote controlled golfing robot, with similar driving control as F13-DriveShoot above, except that tapping the right button will swing the golfing arm instead. Start with the arm down and a ball on the carpet. How many hits will it take you to get the ball into the hole or other target that you make?
F16-Bumper2 (with Treads and Touch Sensors bumper)
Multi-Bot will wander around the room bumping into things with its bumper, try to turn away from what it hit, and keep going.
G2-SumoColor (with Treads, Line Sensor, and Sumo Pusher)
Multi-Bot will stay inside an area marked on the floor with a black tape border, and try to push other objects out of the area.
G3-ColorDrive (with Treads and Line Sensor)
Multi-Bot will drive along a path or course marked with blue tape or paper on the right border, green on the left, and red at the finish line.
G7-BallTrap2 (with Treads and Ball Trap Sensor)
Multi-Bot will drive until it traps a blue, green, or red ball, then it will stop and speak the color of the ball that it found.
G9-BallHunt (with Treads, Ball Trap Sensor, and Golfing Arm)
Start with a few blue and green balls on the carpet near Multi-Bot at different angles. Multi-Bot will try to find the green balls and hit them with the golfing arm, but leave the blue balls alone.
G14-ProFollow (with Treads and Line Sensor)
Multi-Bot will follow a line marked with black electrical tape on a light-colored floor, following any straight and curved parts of the line. The program will start with a "calibration" sequence that you use to easily measure the sensor values that robot sees over darkest part (center of line) and lightest part (open floor) to get the best performance.
J2-ReactionTest (with Touch Sensors as wired remote)
A game to test your reaction time. After getting the "GO!" signal on the screen, how fast can you press touch sensor 1?
