What is it?
Animate your own pictures on the micro:bit display.
Reminder : Open the Microbit editor
You will need to visit this website to the work: Microbit Makecode
Once you are there, click on New Project.
You have done this already many times !!
Extra : Video explaining the task
Method : How it works
This program creates an animation on the micro:bit's LED display output by using an image you create yourself.
First it shows the duck built-in image and then shows a modified version, which moving all the dots (pixels) down one row.
It shows the two different pictures one after the other, with a half second (500 millisecond) delay, to make it look like a duck bobbing up and down on the water.
An infinite loop keeps the micro:bit showing the image sequence until you unplug the micro:bit.
Using loops in computer programmes is also known as iteration. They help you create efficient compact code without needlessly repeating the same instructions.
Warning : Task 1. Improve it
Try modifying and animating different built-in images like GIRAFFE and RABBIT.
Create your own images from scratch using graph paper to sketch out your designs.
Make longer animated sequences to tell a story.
Reminder : Upload your work on your google classroom
