Evaluation on robotics project

My refection:

This term in our robotics unit, we started reaserching about robots. All the usefull information we got was posted on our wikispace.
  • What is a robot
  • Robot rules
  • Robots in the Movies
  • How they affect us
  • What they are made of
  • What impact do they have on us

All this time we have been following the MYP design cycle, which at the end lead us to the Evaluation stage. To make our robots, we used a lego product which is called Mindstorms (hardware). At the stage when we were finished building it, we used Robolab to proggram it.

At the proggraming stage, we had some difficulties with the tower and the software. First of all, in my opinion I think that it's a bit hard to understand what the proggram is saying to you. This is because there is no wiriting at, just symbols. The other thing is that this software is about ten years old and it sometimes starts to act funny. Due to this complications, we weren't able to to proggram our robot. On the other hand, it was the first time for almost everyone in the class to build a robot.

I myself have one of these mindstorms nxt kit, (a newer version) and it is by far easier and more sofisticated that the ones we used, but it's still great fun building then.

The designing of a robot: you can proggram you robot to do almost about anything. For example you can tell it to search for a white line, a trail, to follow heat etc. You could tell it to go 20 steps in every direction until it finds a wihite line then it would have to follow it untill it ends. This might seem lilke a piece of carke for us, but for a robot it is very hard, and if he does it correctly, you could say it is a great succses.

Some of the things we have changed throughout the project were for example, we hoped to get some pictures about the iphone being used by a small kid or used in school. But the iphone is still something very new which school's are just tring it out, so unfortunately there were harldy any pictures about it being used in school. So for a couple of pictures we had to use the ipod as an example which wasn't our main topic although it is similar in some ways to the iphone. Some of the strenghts of our project is that iphone is popular so everyone knew about and liked our presentation. One of the weaknesses that we found in our project was that we didn't work as a team. I thought that we diseagreed a lot in some things. So he went his way and made the animoto his way and I made the voicethread my way so the outcome wasn't as good as we wanted because as saing says "two heads think better than one" so it wasn't as good as we would have liked it to be, but it was fine at the end. And I would recommend to the students that do this project next year to choose someone they know that can work well with you and you can work well with him.

The awsome new IPHONE

The iphone is phone released exclusicily by apple.It has some new features that most phones don't have. For Example: it has a touch screen, you can connect to a wireless network without using your credit.If you flip it around you look at pictures and youtube videos, talking about youtube videos, the iphone has a feature that it has youtube allready installed in it. So if you want to watch some videos you just need to touch it with your finger and there you have it.Did you know that the iphone doesn't have any buttons, exept for one that its only fuction is to light up the screen.You can get them in most thechnology shops and for sure the apple shops. You can use it in many subjects. It can also be a good idea to make a new interactive map, that can be installed in the GPS system for the new students. And they can also be used for the homework.
