#1 Get Started with PicoBricks – PicoBlink


In real life, the employee, who has just started to learn the job, first undertakes the most basic task.The cleaner first learns to use the broom, the cook learns to use the kitchen utensils, the waiter to carry a tray. We can increase these examples. The first code written by newcomers to software development is known as “Hello World”. Printing “Hello World” as soon as the program starts on the screen or console window in the language they use is the first step in programming. Like a baby starting to crawl… The first step to robotic c oding, also known as physical programming, is the Blink application. It means winking at robotic coding.

Details and Algorithm

There are 1 x 5mm red LED and 1 x WS2812B RGB LED on Picobricks. While normal LEDs can light up in one color, RGB colors can light up in different colors, both primary and secondary colors. In this project we will use the red LED on Picobricks.

In the project, we will write the necessary codes to turn on the red LED on Picobricks, turn it off after a certain time, turn it on again after a certain time, and repeat these processes continuously.

MicroPython Codes of the PicoBricks

					from machine import Pin #to access the hardware on the pico
import utime #time library
led = Pin(7,Pin.OUT)#initialize digital pin 7 as an output for LED
while True: #while loop
    led.toggle()# LED on&off status
    utime.sleep(0.5)#wait for a half second

Arduino C Codes of the PicoBricks

					void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:
  pinMode(7,OUTPUT);//initialize digital pin 7 as an output


void loop() {
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:
  digitalWrite(7,HIGH);//turn the LED on by making the voltage HIGH
  delay(500);//wait for a half second
  digitalWrite(7,LOW);//turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
  delay(500);//wait for a half second

Project Proposal 💡

Can we light the LED with different time intervals? For example; flashing of the LED several times per second, several times every half second.
