Digital Relay and Touch Sensor

Control a digital output relay made by Tessel, using a digital input capacitive touch sensor connected to Kinoma Element.

BLE Clapper

Combine Kinoma Create with the Satechi IQ Plug to build a clap on/clap off BLE-controlled outlet switch.

Griffin Bluetooth Button

Build a KinomaJS app that interfaces with the Griffin PowerMate Bluetooth button, using Kinoma Create's built-in BLE stack.

BLE Colorific Light Bulb

Control the color of a BLE Colorific light bulb using the Kinoma Create screen and built-in JavaScript BLE stack.

I²C Temperature and PWM LED

Change the color of an LED based on the current temperature, with an LED and temperature sensor connected to Kinoma Element.

Analog Photocell and HTTP

Read an analog sensor connected to Kinoma Element and use the HTTPClient module to make requests to a web service.

BLE Miselu C.24 Keyboard

Connect the BLE Miselu keyboard to an app on Kinoma Create that enables you to play notes from the keyboard to the audio output on the Create.

BLE Satechi IQ Plug

Control the wireless BLE Satechi IQ Plug from Kinoma Create.

Digital In Hello World

Use a digital pin to read input from a physical button. When pressed, it triggers an event in the application that removes a letter from a string displayed on the Kinoma Create screen. Start here to learn how to use Digital Input.

Serial Camera

Capture and display photographs on the Kinoma Create screen when a button is pressed, using Digital Input to monitor the button.

Digital LED and WebSockets

Make a companion app for a Kinoma Create project, implementing communication between an iOS app and Kinoma Create via WebSockets. Digital Output is used to turn an LED on and off on the Create.

Digital Out LED

Use a digital pin to turn on and off an LED when a button is pressed on the Kinoma Create screen. Start here to learn how to use Digital Output.

I²C Color Sensor

Fill the Kinoma Create screen with the color sensed by an RGB color sensor. Digital Output is used to turn the color sensor's LED on and off.

Analog Skeleton

Display a value from an analog input onto the Kinoma Create screen. Start here to learn how to use Analog Input.

Analog Value Graph

Plot the reading from any analog sensor in real time on the Kinoma Create screen.

Analog Drawing Toy

Draw lines on the Kinoma Create screen using potentiometers, and erase your drawing with a shake gesture interpreted by an accelerometer. Analog Input is used for both.

PWM Tri-Color LED

Use red/green/blue sliders on the Kinoma Create screen to control the color of an RGB LED. The LED is controlled by PWM pins.

PWM Continuous Servo

Rotate a continuous servo using a PWM pin on Kinoma Create.

I²C Temperature

Obtain the current temperature from an I2C temperature sensor and display it on the Kinoma Create screen.

Audio Recorder Player

Record and play up to 30 seconds of audio on Kinoma Create's built-in microphone and speaker.
