Dial a star

Recently we have added loads of new blocks for programming CodeBug, so we thought we would put them to the test with some fun creations! Our first project is this nifty little Dial-A-Star.

You may have tried our ColourStar wand activity which shows people how to create their very own panto wand using the CodeBug ColourStar tail.

The new analogue blocks have let us expand the ColourStar wand project. You can now adjust the red green and blue parts of the colour on your wand with three colour-coded dials. You cycle through the colours by pressing button A on CodeBug or press button B to have the colours mixed into one. Check out the project here.

To code your own Dial-A-Star, have a go at the ColourStar wand activity and the Dial control activity.
