How Centipede works
- Purchase the Arduino Pro Micro at Amazon or click on the image on the right. If this model is out of stock, we’ve also tested this slightly more expensive model at Adafruit.
- Make an account on Arduino Create.
- Determine if you are enrolling a Chromebook with version 57 (or lower), or version 58 (or higher).
- Make a copy of the Centipede sketch file that matches your version (57- or 58+).
- Fire up a factory-fresh Chromebook and plug in Centipede via a micro-USB cable
- Watch and weep tears of joy as Centipede does the dirty work for you
Put it to work in your makerspace
Take it easy
Save those lovely wrists
We offer Centipede as a DIY solution that involves the purchase of 3rd party hardware we have tested, but cannot directly guarantee.
- Amplified Labs makes the code available free of charge.
- We do not sell the Arduino hardware, but we suggest purchasing the one at this Amazon Link, because we’ve tested this model.
- We recommend getting 5 or more units per staff member that will be involved in unboxing /enrollment.
- If your team requires assistance beyond our help community, please purchase or utilize your existing Amplified IT support hours as necessary.
