How to Start

Step 1: POWER UP YOUR TOKYMAKER.

The Tokymaker automatically draw power from the batteies or an external power supply.
The power Button is at the left to the power supply.

Step 2 : COMPATIBILITY

The uploading to your Tokymaker is only compatible with the following combinations :

  • Mac AND Google Chrome
  • Every device of Android version 6.0+ AND Google Chrome
  • Windows 10 users, download Google Chrome Canary and you are good to go! https://www.google.com/chrome/canary/
Step 3 : BLUETOOTH AND WIFI
Make sure that the Wifi and Bluetooth of your tablet / computer / smartphone is on
Step 4 : CODE!

 

You can check these instructions or follow the video below

Go to the website : www.create.tokylabs.com
This website is the IDE of the Tokymaker. Here we can program it.

Let’s try :
Drag a “Loop” block place in in the middle of the screen. Drag and drop 3 blocks : Screen: clear, Screen: print and Screen: display.
In the Screen: print block you can write “Hello”.
If you are done click on the Bluetooth button at the top bar of the screen, select your Tokymaker and click connect.
Compile afterwards by clicking on the Play button.
Now your Tokymaker is “compiling…” Wait until you see “Sent 100%”
When this is done there should be “Hello” on the screen of your Tokymaker.

 

Programming

Learn to code your own prototypes using the simple visual coding interface on our website.
The programming is created by drag and drop of blocs!
The uploading is done with the Web Bluetooth Technology. This means we don’t need a cable and plug-in anymore!

Tokymaker, the coolest microcomputer

Tokymaker is a microcomputer.  You may wonder: Well, what does this mean?

There are four main components that make up any computer:

  1. The Processor – this is usually a small chip inside the computer, and it’s how the computer processes and transforms information. Has anyone heard of the term “CPU”? CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. You can think of the processor as the Brains of the computer.
  2. The Memory – This is where the computer stores things and keeps it for later.
  3. Inputs – this is how a computer perceives information from the world. On humans, our input comes in through our senses, such as our ears and eyes. For a classic computer it is the Keyboard, Mouse, Touchscreen, Microphone, Game Controller…
  4. Outputs – this is how a computer displays or communicates information. On humans, we communicate information by using our mouth when talking. For a classic Computer,  outputs could be a Screen,  Speakers, Printer…

 

 

Inputs and Outputs

INPUTS

Tokymaker’s inputs are Sensors, like light, sound, movement, temperature, cacceleration, humidity, magnetic field, tilt, touch, level of water, rotation, and much much more. All of them receive information from the environment.

OUTPUTS

The Outputs are the actuators: speakers, motors, screens, lights, water pump, vibrators and more. They create an action based on your code. It is the way to interact with the world!
Tokymaker has the easiest approach to include electronics in your tech projects. Something you can not do with a classical computer

So this microcomputer allows you to do physical tech projects that you can’t do with a classical computer!

Tokymaker  description

4.Inputs

The Tokymaker has a set of analog inputs. These pins can read the signal from an analog sensor like a rotation sensor and convert it into a value that can be read by the Tokymaker.

5.Button A and B
You could connect a button to any of the Inputs, but Tokymaker has already two physical buttons embedded.

6.Sonar sensor
Tokymaker also have a input connection for a Sonar Sensor. This Sonar Sensor can read a distance between the sensor and a object.

8.Touch Pad
Tokymaker also counts with three touch pads that act as a button in the same way as Buttons A and B.

9.Screen
The integrated screen can show text, lines, dots,…

10.Outputs
The Tokymaker has a set of outputs. You can program these pins so an actuator like a servo motor, a speaker or a light can react on that value.

 

1.Power USB
Tokymaker can be powered by using the USB cable from your USB charger. All you need to do is connect the USB cable to the USB connection (1).

2. Other Power Supply
Tokymaker can be powered from batteries

3. Power Button
With this button we can turn the Tokymaker ON or OFF.

4.Inputs
The Tokymaker has a set of analog inputs. These pins can read the signal from an analog sensor like a rotation sensor and convert it into a value that can be read by the Tokymaker.

7.Onhead LED
Without light we aren’t able to see. So that’s why there is a on-board LED included in the Tokymaker. It can show every colour that you want.
