Visual Programming is an easy-to-use programming tool that allows you to create original movements and tricks for your aibo without needing to know any programming language. This is because the programming method is carried out graphically, by working with illustrations in the form of blocks instead of using text. This method is actively used in schools and programming classes around the world. It is very easy to use since you only need to drag and drop the blocks to connect them with one another. As this allows you to program intuitively, even programming beginners can easily start creating programs. In this Visual Programming Guide for Beginners, we explain how you can get started with visual programming:
First, you need to have an aibo in order to use the Visual Programming tool. Don’t have yours yet? Purchase here.
Check the aibo Visual Programming term.
Start making new movements and tricks for aibo by organizing the blocks on the screen.
Step 1: From the "Code" tab on the left, click on "Event" listed at the top.
Step 2: Drag and drop the "When the [green flag] is clicked " block into the area on the right.
Step 3: From the "Code" tab on the left, click on "Sound" listed near the bottom.
Step 4: Drag and drop the "[aibo's name] sings" block right beneath the "When the [green flag] is clicked" block. Leave no space between the two blocks.
Step 5: Click on the green flag located on the upper-right. This will run the program. Within a moment, aibo will start to sing.
Step 6: Other programming examples can be found in "Sample projects" located toward the top.
Save your project and share it with others.
