Bubble is a robotic system for visualizing sorting algorithms.
It's boring to view these things on a screen - let's learn about searching and sorting algorithms in front of our very eyes. With a robot.
What it's made of
Bubble consists of:
- A custom-designed (in 18 hours) XY-axis system powered by stepper motors for manipulating cards
- A powerful intake fan for suction of playing cards
- A computer vision system for isolating and identifying the values of arbitrary playing cards
- A website for potential students to learn more about Bubble.
What can it do?
Bubble can perform bubble-sort on playing cards. It's fantastic, interactive, and very real.
We're excited to build a platform that makes learning about algorithms easier and more effective - and encourages people to apply their newfound algorithmic knowledge to disciplines ranging from hardware design to web development, just like we did.
