Announcing the Ringo Challenge!
We want to see what kind of awesome things you all are doing with your Ringo bots! So today we're announcing the Ringo Challenge. The challenge will be an ongoing list of individual challenges. The idea is for you to get creative and submit your own take on the present challenge, share your work online, and at the end of each challenge we'll post a public poll where a winner will be voted on and chosen. The winner will get a high five as well as a gift certificate to the Plum Geek store. We may occasionally offer up other goodies as well.
Ringo Challenge #1 - "React to Light"
The first ever Ringo Challenge is called "React to Light". In this challenge you are tasked with making Ringo do something interesting in response to light. Here are the official challenge rules.
Good luck! We can't wait to see what you come up with!!
To get you started, we suggest looking at the "Spin Squeek" and "Follow Light" pre-loaded behaviors. The Spin Squeek example looks for a change in lighting then Ringo does something. The Follow Light example shows light seeking. Of course you can go off on your own and do something completely different. Just have fun along the way!
You can download example sketches with the Spin Squeek and Light Follow behaviors isolated so you can immediately build upon them.
