Here are a bunch of videos that show how to add components to your project.
You are not limited to these components. There are other goodies in your NodeBot kit and even more in the community parts pile.
Servo motors are like tiny self-contained robots that want to one thing: move to a position and stay there. They’re the easiest way to make things flap or go back and fourth.
Motors make things spin. Your creation can use this to move around or make things spin.
An H-bridge chip manages power, and controls your motor’s speed and direction.
Use a photoresistor to sense ambient light, like how dark it gets for your robot when it’s upside down.
NeoPixels are individually addressable RGB LEDs. Use them to make your robot produce sparkly rainbows, or display information in a cool way.
You’re mostly on your own from here on out. Grab some parts from the community parts pile and follow an example on the Johnny-Five examples list. Use the resources you’ve learned about to build something cool.
