    Considering the wide use of micro:bit and electromagnetic lock, we made a video that combines the two to apply in life. What electromagnetic lock is? Electromagnetic lock is a locking device that consists of an electromagnet and an armature plate. There are two main types of electric locking devices. Locking devices can be either "fail safe" or "fail secure". Electromagnetic locks are fail-safe by design. (Fail-safe means that if the power goes off the door will be unlocked).

    How to program python game "Flappy bird" on CrowPi

    Last week, my niece came over and picked up the phone to show me the flappy bird game she played. But a few minutes later, her mother took the phone away, then she was a heartbreaking cry and rolled on the ground. When I looked at her watery eyes, as her uncle, I thought of a plan - use Python to program the "Flappy bird" game on CrowPi to save my niece. Her mother won't let her play the phone because she thinks that the phone will only affect her learning and let her indulge in the virtual world of the Internet. Therefor , CrowPi must be a wonderful choice. CrowPi is based on learning and entertainment. It allows users to learn while playing,

    Make a calculator on CrowPi

    My neighbor has a little girl with bad arithmetic. This is a headache when her parents direct her arithmetic, so I want to use Crowpi to program a simple calculator to help people who are not good at computing. My idea is to use the 4  independent buttons on Crowpi as +, - , *, /, and then use the 10 buttons on the matrix button to do 0-9 respectively.When I press these buttons, Crowpi Lcd can display the contents of the button I pressed. When I want to get the result, just touch the touch sensor and it will automatically display the result on the LCD.

    With the basic ideas, let's get started. Of course, the first thing to do is always to import the modules we want to use. import math import time
