Haunted House Mini-Golf

My groups original goal is to create a mini-golf course that includes a haunted theme. The technology that we are using is Lego and hummingbird. it has spinning graves, turning doors and light behind a silhouette.

This my original design of the parts and complexities. It is a mini-golf course with a silhouette that has lights behind it and makes it look scary. It also has a pipe underneath that once you get the ball in the hole it will deliver it back to the start.

 

 

This is my first iteration of the spinning graves that I am making. I am making the spinning graves by sticking on the cardboard graves

 

 

 

 

These are some of the pictures of my mini golf course that I took today. The black house has a little hole in it for the ball, it is all in the same line so if you get it through the house then you get it in the hole. but it is very very hard to get in.

 

Here is a video of my mini-golf spinning graves are working. It is going very good, the code is working so we think that we have finished the spinning. graves.

This is my hummingbird that I have been working on with the code. It makes the light go on behind the silhouette to make the silhouette to make it look cool and scary.

 

 

 

This is the code that I use to make the graves spin. They spin at speed 50 and they do 1 spin. It doesn’t seem to be working but i will try a different way.

 

 

This is a screen cast of my spinning graves code and how it works.

This is the new addition of our spinning graves they work very well and we think that we have finished them. On our course they are positioned on the left of the house. We use these spinning graves to make it harder to go past the house.

 

This is a video of the turning doors. They use two big motors and it is connected by a Lego piece. The doors block the ball from going into the haunted house to make it harder and to put more technology into the mini-golf course.

 

 

Here is a better version that explains how the doors work and it gives an explanation for the code.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lego Robotics Project

 

This is my Lego robotics project that I made on my own off by heart. it is a plane and what it is supposed to do is sway side to side to make it seem like its in the wind. there is one big motor in this structure and it is a big motor and it spins around so you can use it for wheels on a car in my case to make something sway side to side

This is an Lego E.V.3 Mindstorms robot that controls every thing that happens when I start the code. It literally  controls everything that happen with the motors and it a key aliment that will bring your robot to life.

This is test 1 of my robot working although it does what I want it to do it still is a little bit to fast and it ruins that plane affect and what I will do to  prevent it from happening is I will change the speed on my Lego Mindstorms program.

This is one of the blocks that I to code my robot working and it controls the motor and tells it what to do and when to spin, how long to spin for and how fast to spin. This code is also essential for my plane to spin correctly.

 

 

Australian States

 

 

 

Facts

Victoria

Until 1851 the area was part of New South Wales then from 1851 until 1901 it was the Colony of Victoria, with its own government within the British Empire. In 1901 it became a state of the new Commonwealth of Australia.

The state of Victoria was originally home to many indigenous nations that had occupied the land for tens of thousands of years. According to Gary Presland Aborigines have lived in Victoria for about 40,000 years, living a semi-nomadic existence of fishing, hunting and gathering, and farming eels.

New South Wales

New South Wales’ border is the longest of all Australian state and territory borders, measuring a lengthy 4,635 km

New South Wales is sometimes called the ‘First State’ or the ‘Premier State’.

Tasmania

Tasmania is often referred to as the ‘Holiday Isle’ or the ‘Apple Isle’.

Measuring only 85 metres across, Tasmania’s border is the shortest border of any Australian state or territory. This border is a land border between Victoria and Tasmania and is a small rocky outcrop in the Bass Strait named Boundary Islet.

Queensland

Queensland possesses five of Australia’s eleven World Natural Heritage areas: Fraser Island, Scenic Rim National Parks, the Great Barrier Reef, Riversleigh Fossil Fields and the Wet Tropics.

Queensland has Australia’s biggest theme parks with four located on the Gold Coast: Sea World, Movie World. Wet’n’Wild, Water World and Dreamworld.

Northern Territory

The Northern Territory’s Finke River is the oldest river system in the world, with parts possibly dating as far back as 340 million years.

Uluru has been around for millions of years and stands about 348 metres high. Interestingly, it is thought that the bulk of the rock is underground, extending down 2.5 kilometres.

Western Australia

Western Australia’s Mount Augustus is twice the size of Uluru. Although only one third of Mount Augustus is visible above the surface of the earth, stretching to a massive 8 km in length, this is the world’s largest rock.

Western Australia is home to the Argyle Mine, the world’s largest producer of diamonds.

South Australia

The highest recorded temperature in Australia was in 1960 in Oodnadatta in South Australia, when the temperature reached 50.7°C. Now that is hot!

Lake Eyre, in the outback of South Australia, is the largest Salt Lake in the world. While it does flood it is normally dry. It has been the location for many attempts at breaking the world land-speed record

 

This is my end product with the code

 

 

 

What did I do?

I made a interactive presentation on Australia and its states, capitals and territory’s.

What was important about it?

The important thig was to get everything right or it would not work.

Where could I use this again?

I could use this  program if I wanted to make a different project.

Did I notice any patterns?

The programming for Makey Makey  was similar to the music programming, and tiles.

How well did I do?

I think that I did a pretty good job even though I had a few problems like when I pressed a button nothing worked but in the end it was very successful.

What should I do next?

I think I might make a piano  with a Makey Makey   and music programs

 

 

Microbit Semester

My Microbit Semester has been great. I have learnt so much, like how to make a flashing heart or a rock paper scissors game. I  also made a step counter which was hard at first but the I got the hang of it. Now I can do all sorts of things and it has been very fun.

These are some of the videos and pictures of my Microbit in action. what you do to get the code onto your Microbit from your computer is you use a USB cord because the Microbit has a USB cord input. The Microbit has so many features, for example The weather, text, LED lights, buttons motion sensors, icons and you can even  play Rock Paper Scissors. My first video is of a flashing heart, it was tricky but I did it in the end.I hope you enjoy my videos.
