A while ago, I started a new project trying to create different “smart” bricks which will interconnect with some other well known brick systems (e.g. Lego). By “smart” bricks, bricks are meant which are able to perform a certain functionality like driving LEDs, detecting button presses, control DC motors or servos, read sensors and so […]

Pynetsense is a Python library that provides a simple to use API for implementing Scratch networking sensor clients. For communicating with Scratch, the remote sensor protocol is used. Beside providing a simple API to manage messages and variables, a wrapper framework is provided. The wrapper framework helps with implementing sensor clients that run in the […]
