The CREATE Lab Visual Programmer was developed with Hummingbird as part of the CMU CREATE Lab Arts & Bots program. The Visual Programmer uses a story-boarding approach to programming that is quick and easy to learn. The interface allows you to rapidly create expressions by selecting outputs and setting them on or off. Once several expressions have been built, you can create a sequence that uses these expressions to make a program. Learn to use the Visual Programmer by watching the videos, reading the tutorial below, or downloading the comic guide.
Use the following tutorial video to get started with programming CREATE Lab Visual Programmer with the Hummingbird.
Exporting to Arduino
By exporting a sequence to Arduino mode, you can see the same program expressed as Arduino code, and you can run the program on your Hummingbird Duo with it unplugged from the computer. Follow the instructions, or download the comic version.
