if you are not familiar with nodebots or arduinos, you should start by doing the lasercat workshop that we made with Tableflip for LXJS 2014

if you cloned the yld-workshop repo, you have the boilerplate code for the lasercat exercise in the exercises folder, fork the repo and start from there.

#Johnny five

Johnny five is a JavaScript Robotics & IoT Platform and is used by the catbot module

interesting APIs for the cat are

  • LED for the laser
  • Servo to move the turret
  • Joystick to use the joystick if your kit have one.

#What's next ?

it is a bit up to you from here on, there is a library to play with the bot on npm npm i catbot details here
