Re: Compiler Error?

The error tells you that you are missing a file. Go to http://www.plumgeek.com/getting-started.html and follow the section headed Install Ringo Software Libraries , you havent installed the third party files that both RIngo and Wink use. Just follow the section and you'll be sorted. I guess the init...

Re: Can't program

do you have any error messages you can share? Are you plugging the usb cable into the computer or a usb hub? I dont have access to windows 10 to test but I'm running win7 for my setup. I can only guess there is an error message at the bottom of the arduino software screen that will help give a clue....

Re: Trying to update Wink for the IR feature

Wayne's advice is correct and should solve the problem. Just a note that some seem to have trouble with, once you get set up you'll see the Sketchbooks (code examples) in the menu of the arduino software.Make sure you only use the Ringo sketches for the Ringo bot and likewise Wink sketches for Wink ...

Re: Line Follower Basics Available?

Wclift, thanks, been experimenting some more and getting meaningless values to use, looks like i'm just missing the LOW switch. -------- Ok i've had a play, the pads underneath Wink are dragging too much on my test track but i've modified my Ringo code as simple as i needed to see it work. So its ho...

Re: Tires for Wink

Earring back stoppers. I bought a bulk pack off ebay cheap made of silicon rubber. But you should be able to get some anywhere you get earrings or ears pierced. Mine are tiny rounded cone shaped with a hole in the rear only, meant to slide over the small pin of an earring and comfortably hold it saf...

Re: Line Follower Basics Available?

Sorry, disregard the above. I've been trying to adapt my code but failing, i think i'm not reading the sensors correctly and it seems some command have a different case between ringo and wink, eg Motors() vs motors(). Back to the drawing board for me.

Re: Wink Programming Question: Function Reference Manual

While there is still limited references for Ringo or Wink at the moment, Google can help you out greatly. Accessing Ringo and Wink's hardware is easy enough to find but how to work with the values and do things is not really specific to the hardware so you can find help in many places. For example y...

Re: Line Follower Basics Available?

Take a look in the Ringo code area where i posted my simple line following example. I haven't adapted it for Wink yet but it should be simple to follow if you want to try it yourself. The process I used is based on Ringo which only has two IR sensors underneath. I started by writing code to read the...

Re: Wink Issue.

The ON switch is a problem that still catches me out too so dont worry about it too much. Get yourself a soft rubber pencil eraser as a stand to sit your Ringo or Wink on so it doesnt go skittering off :) I still get transfer errors occassionally though but unplugging and turning off the bot, then r...

Re: Imperial March

Trent, I had a play with your imperial march and got ringo to fire up a light saber and do alight hacking and slashing with the music.Not much, just a bit of fun. void loop(){ SetAllPixelsRGB(0, 0, 0); //all lights off Motors(0,0); PlayChirp(NOTE_E5, 50); SetPixelRGB( 4, 0, 20, 0); delay(333); OffCh...
