Connect Internet media to MakerBit sensors and actuators.
The primary function of this versatile app is to connect digital media to physical school projects such as dioramas and posterboards. With this, you can create a media list that associates Google drive videos, Google slides, YouTube videos and Wikipedia pages with a touch sensor on a project.
This version of the MakerBit Media Linker is intended for school classroom use, and ONLY allows access to student-curated content created with Google Slides and videos in Google Drive.
There is also a data view of the MakerBit (micro:bit) board that lets you directly control output pins and monitor inputs. You can set any pin to input or output, servo or PWM, depending on whether that pin supports that mode. This is modeled on the program Firmata Test for the Arduino, where the Arduino is running Standard Firmata.
Note: This software is specifically designed to be used in conjunction with the MakerBit adapter for the BBC micro:bit. See the makerbit.com website for more information.
A version of the the MakerBit Media Linker has been created for the Arduino, and can be found by searching for “HyperDuino Media Linker”.
