Scouts and Forth?



- 1000 Controllers - The biggest Forth cluster built by scouts.

In England, every five years there is an jamboree, and this year again, "Peak 2015 Scout & Guide Jamboree", so great fun for the young people. The meeting at Chatsworth Estate, Derbyshire, starts on July 25th and continues until 1 August 2015. As part of the various activities the plan is to include “building electronics” this year. It fits nicely there, because the motto is "time travel". And when you want to look into the future, where computers will be everywhere – a better understanding at the basic level helps. Solder your own computer together; you will be using the small PCB - Printed Circuit Board that is equipped with a TI MSP430 Controller and LEDs. Two batteries are the power supply. The enclosure is an emptied TicTac box. In this MCU the Forth will be pre-installed. Simple examples with limited-vocabulary are included. And so you might as well try them immediately. Internally it is discussed as well - what can you do quickly with a network of 1,000 controllers and LEDs – software solutions have been found to broadcast to 1024 Controller systems as a 32 x 32 bit LED Array built as a 2m x 2meter display panel – but additional ideas are welcome ...

And you may also donate for this good cause – as the budget is VERY limited.

Well, I'm curious to see what happens. (JP)
