Description

With these building instructions and a single set of LEGO SPIKE Prime, you can build a monkey and program it to swing. You will gain insights into the physics of pendulums and swings with this monkey trapeze artist. Subjects of interest are:

  • What is a period and when does it change?
  • How can you add energy to pendulum?
  • How can you make a pendulum stop?
  • What does a gyroscope do?
  • What is a roll angle?
  • What is a roll rate?
  • Where should you measure the roll rate?
  • What is motor feedback?

When you buy SPIKE Prime Monkey Robot Swing, you will get access to these files:

  • The under-the-table version monkey swing
  • 360 monkey swing version with a broomstick
  • Python code for 360 swings, VS Code version (.py)
  • Python code for 360 swings, SPIKE App version (.llsp)
  • Scratch program

You can paste the contents of the .py file into an empty SPIKE Prime Python project. The llsp project is written with the included API, however.

    Very nice experience for my son and myself to build and programming the ‘Swing Monkey’. Playing around with the code gave a addition room to further improve the programming (stop the swinging when the angle gets too high etc.)
