The PicoBoard allows you to create interactions with various sensors. Using the Scratch programming language, you can easily create simple interactive programs based on the input from sensors. The PicoBoard incorporates a light sensor, sound sensor, a button and a slider, as well as 4 additional inputs that can sense electrical resistance via included cables.
Designed for educators and beginners, the PicoBoard is a good way to get into the very basics of programming and reading sensors.
In this tutorial, we will demo how to use picoBoard for scratch on pcDuino.

Z-Wave is a wireless communications protocol designed for home automation, specifically to remotely control applications in residential and light commercial environments. The technology uses a low-power RF radio embedded or retrofitted into electronics devices and systems, such as lighting, home access control, entertainment systems and household appliances.
We follow the steps in post to install z-wave controller on pcDuino. In this tutorial, we show what we did on pcDuino.

MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It’s a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything inbetween.
We start to carry a touch USB shield that does the same job as Makey Makey so that Arduino and pcDuino can do that Makey Makey can do.
This touch USB shield uses two GPIOs of Arduino or pcDuino to simulate the USB device, and implement the whole USB HID stack by firmware.
We love Sparkfun’s danger shield so much so we designed a 3D printable case for it.
The picture is as follows:
The design files are shown below:
In this tutorial, we are going to cover using JPEG camera to capture a picture and save to SD card.
The connection between LS_Y601 and Arduino
LS_Y601 is serial camera, using softserial(pin 4 , 5) connect with Arduino. LS_Y601 is TTL, so can directly use 5V power supply pin on Arduino.
The connection between SD module and Arduino
SD card works on SPI mode, and use 5V power supply.
- 13 pin connect SCK
- 12 pin connect MISO
- 11 pin connect MOSI
- 10 pin connect SS
Power supply connection
Power directly connection 5V and GND pin on Arduino, the other connent to breadboard,
Supply power for SD module and camera.
