    • 2 Spheros simultanously?

      Is it possible to control 2 Spheros simultaneously? This way, on could do mini ballets.

      • Sprite/scene editor

        I've seen a few related ideas, but most don't include the scratch notion of costumes, which many devices might support via LEDs (for encapsulating states, like a "happy costume" where LEDs can blink in a friendly way for example), but extend that to sprites so users can create new characters and animations. Or at least be able to import them from a standard scratch account. The same for backdrops. Little girls especially seem to gravitate to this sort of feature, which keeps them hooked on learning the other stuff. Additionally, I've noticed that animations are already supported. This might be…

        • another interesting device JBL pulse

          http://www.jbl.com/bluetooth-speakers/JBL+PULSE+2.html

          It's got an 8x8 grid of RGB led's, controllable via Bluetooth.
          I can't find any documentation yet, but was told by JBL reps yesterday it is hack-able and they will be having a hackathon.

          Will update with details if I get them.

            Tickle is a great way to play with IoT devices, but limited on the Internet part. It would expand options if we could integrate with https://ifttt.com/ or maybe https://www.scriptr.io to use the weather as and input; or social media as inputs / output.

            • Join more than two strings without nesting join blocks

              Joining multiple strings without having to nest the join blocks, in the style of Tynker's join block.

              For instance, to say something like "(3, 4)" where you have 3 and 4 stored in variables involves nesting lots of joins. I'd like to be able to do something like Join "(" var1 "," var2 ")"

                • Shapes, text, sounds and more

                  I really like Tickle, but I am disappointed by the fact that we can only add a few characters. If we could add basic shapes and change their size and color, it would be amazing. Also, adding text boxes would be a great new feature. Finally, the ability of importing and recording sounds would be awesome.
                  If you can bring those features to Tickle, I will give your app 5 stars !

                      • Make Orca the default

                        Not very exciting idea, but perhaps you could make the "Orca" the top option so that people without fancy hardware devices can quickly start coding!

                        • bluetooth communications block

                          the Lego Mindstorms programming language has a "bluetooth" communications block it can use to communicate with a variety of devices. If Tickle contained such a block, users could easily use it with any bluetooth device, including sending messages back and forth to a lego mindstorms brick. Users the write their own lego programs, tickle could just say "bluetoothsend' mindstorms1, Sit" for example, the the lego brick would activate whatever its "Sit" routine might be.

                          Such a bluetooth block(s) in tickle, (send, receive), is all thats really needed to add the wonderful world of Lego to tickle.

                                  I know there are a lot of other people waiting for API support for their things, but maybe the programming might not be as different from the minidrone. Both can fly in 3D space and both can do tricks and flips, so maybe they're not so different?

                                  • use extreme caution flying rolling spider

                                    at the time of this post, there are a lot of bugs in the way tickle handles the flight settings on the rolling spider. It doesn't seem to know the difference between wheel mode and not wheel mode. Tickle has no way of knowing if theres wheels mounted or not, but seems to switch between modes? , the speed setting block changes the max pitch and climb rate setting, rather than setting the speed of movement. Positional stability when flying outdoors is non-existent. Its like the stabilizer camera is not even on, IDK. I program it to fly up, forward,…

                                        Is it possible to connect to LittleBits kits? They connect direct, USB or via wiFi.

                                          Many students in high schools and middle schools are getting into Arduino controllers. Perhaps you could document a C++ Bluetooth API to interface with Tickle enabling electronics and robotics classes to collaborate with other classes using Tickle.
