Lego Pixilation

Arduinos and Legos are cool. How about an Arduino Lego Pixilation Tutorial? Hopefully this will be a fun way for kids to learn Arduino and I think adults might like it also. This is the first Arduino tutorial for beginners using Lego pixilation on the Videotronicmaker Channel. Lego Arduino tutorials using Legos to perform the tutorial.


Episode 1 | How I got hooked on Arduino

A co-worker told me about Arduino, SBCs and the Maker Revolution/Movement. I researched it all and I was fascinated by what was discovered.

Episode 2 | How to Make a YouTube video

There are many approaches to how to shoot and produce a video. In the end you can only work with what you have. If you try to do everything perfectly and wait until you can afford to buy the best gear and get the best training you will not make videos for quite a while.

Arduino Tutorials

Arduino Projects for Beginners

My learning journey began on YouTube watching other videos by YouTubers who shared their projects and code. Because this was how I began learning and as this Maker Movement is dependent on the community sharing what they have learned I thought it was only fitting that I do the same.

This playlist features my latest projects and how I made the connections and the code I used for the Arduino sketches. Initially, the code I used was found on the internet. As we learn more about coding in the Arduino IDE I hope that more of it consists of our own code and less of what others have shared on the web.

Visuino Tutorials

Arduino without coding

The components found in the Visuino software represent the actual hardware components. You will easily be able to create and design your programs using drag and drop. No equipment or hardware is needed to run the software in design mode. Once you have completed the design, you can connect the Arduino board, upload and run it.

For those people who are not strong with writing code then designing, compiling and creating Arduino programs has never been easier! Why waste time on creating code when Visuino has done all the hard work for you? See your project running in minutes, not hours!
