The Magic Drone Project
The 360 degree video on the left demonstrates the final result of the Magic Drone project. A Magic wand is constructed using a DLSR camera selfie stick with a Circuit Playground Express attached to it via it’s standard enclosure with a LED strip connected to it. The Circuit Playground Express is connected to a computer by a USB cable. A sketch program is loaded onto the Circuit Playground Express that utilizes its built in motion sensor to send a keypress command to the computer and lights up the LED’s when the wand is waved. The computer is running scratch 2.0 using a block program that plays music, triggers the magic soundfx and sends random flight commands to the Tello drone.
