'[PIC]: PIC "show cases" ?'
2004\02\12@073247 by Jan-Erik Soderholm

face picon face
Hi.
I am looking for a couple of "show cases" where a PIC was used in
a fun and simple way. Two that comes to mind are Rob Hamerling's
"Christmas Candles 2002" project and Herbert Graf's "CarMon" project
(maybe not "entry level", but nice anyway...).

Any other simple projects that comes to mind ? It's nice if there is some
web page with a few images of the finished project that I could print
on a OH film. Note, I'm not going to "use" the project as such, just show
them as PIC examples.

I'm going to talk for 12-20 min in a second grade technical school class,
and try to get a couple of them to run a PIC-based project. The project
will at the same time be an evaluation of using PICs (or rather
microcontrolers in general) on this level.

So the emphazis is on *what* you can do, not *how* you
do it. None or just a few technical details. Nice/fun images
are better then techincal details.

Any ideas ?
Best Regards !
Jan-Erik.

What about the ever popular Bob Blick propeller clock?

My HAL project at http://www.embedinc.com/pic/hal.htm might be the type of
project you are looking for.

I entered "stupid PIC tricks" in Google and got 55
hits. Mostly different pages  as far as I can see.

Was in any particular page you thought about ?

How about a self-balancing robot:
http://www.tedlarson.com/robots/balancingbot.htm

There are many pictures and videos at that link you can feel free to use.
All the balancing on the larger robot is done using a PIC18F452, and on the
smaller one it is a PIC18F252.

Enjoy!

- Ted

Thanks !
Nice list and fun to read, but not much to show using a
OH projector in front of 15 (bored) teenagers... :-)

But, as I said, thanks for the pointer !

But having scanned down it reminded me of the pong game built on a PIC.

http://dt.prohosting.com/pic/pong.html

or

http://www.rickard.gunee.com/projects/ for a different series of PIC based
games.

Truly great ! ! That is one cute robot !

Now I'm sorry I didn't keep up with my robot efforts
all those many years ago.

Keep up the good work.

How about Rickard Gunee's video games, PONG and TETRIS?
(http://www.rickard.gunee.com/projects/)

If you don't mind the chip being an SX instead of a PIC,
you can even show them a color videogame.

You could check the PICLIST archives for "propeller clock".
