Using the Android Phone

Has anybody used the Android phone and application with the Prop?  What is the interface to the chip?  Is it just high low signals?  I downloded the android software but the image is always sideways…Continue

The Parallax Propeller micro controller can be programmed in several languages.

In addition to the default SPIN (custom designed for the 'prop) and PASM (propeller assembler), that are many third party languages.  These include BASIC, C, and FORTH.


I am the FORTH guy.  I am on the team designing and implementing propforth.  Primarily, I do the documentation and final regression testing, I leave the internals to the the experts.


PropForth will run on ANY propeller.  It is simple enough that anyone that has ever worked in a dinner can use it (in reference to its stack oriented nature).  If I can use it, pretty much anybody can use it. IT IS FUN!

I just (finally) finished up my design of a Laser Range Finder module for Parallax that uses the Propeller processor, along with a CMOS camera and laser diode, to determine distance to a targeted object by optical triangulation. Check it out here:

I am going to modify my boebot to use the propeller and would like to use java or c++ to put some sort of AI on it. I love the fact that the propeller boe has a place for a mini-sd chip built-in
