Kittenbot Joyfrog Programmable Interactive Gamepad for Micro:bit & Meowbit
Joyfrog is a programmable interactive gamepad that can be programmed with Makecode Scratch. It's easy to use and can be connected to micro:bit as a gamepad expansion board. It can also be used independently as a programming board through Kittenblock scratch programming software.
Joyfrog is able to be recognized as a HID input device automatically when it is plugged into the computer. It eliminates the need to manually install the driver and can be used as part of the keyboard input button without opening any programming software. Joyfrog controls the movements of the stage character through the programmable joystick and the buttons of it.
The Joyfrog can be used as a music module for Scratch. After connecting the connecting finger contacts to several fruits through the alligator clip, we can easily make a fruit instrument. Scratch's music module has 18 percussion instruments, for students to imagine what is possible.
In addition, the frog handle has two PH2.0 3pin connectors, which can be connected to the conventional 3pin sensor on the market. There are two PH2.0 4PIN interfaces, you can insert the PowerBrick modules of Kittenbot to make the DIY projects more abundant.
The on board infrared emitter/receiver has built-in automatic infrared decoding NEC. You can decode the conventional remote control on the market and return the decoded data to Kittenblock. You can also record it and then programmatically send different IR codes so that you can control the infrared devices in your home as well as 2.4G infrared wireless toy cars/robots.
