This instructable show you how to make the instructables robot start the Harlem Shake (with music playing) and, when the bass drops, make the whole sight go crazy. Internet Explorer and Firefox Versions Coming Soon. This is just for chrome for now.
What did you make? I made a python program that is 914 lines long that automatically goes to the website you program it to (it goes straight to instructables.com if you don't follow my steps to edit the code) and makes the site do the harlem shake. In the instructables version, it makes the instructables robot start the dance and then everything else joins in.
How did you make it? I made it by taking a little bit of time each day to work on the program. I am just learning java so I spent hours on end looking through python manuals and code directories. My plans developed as I worked on it and it went from a 12,000 line long program to a 914 line long program (I found a few shortcuts).
Where did you make it? I made this entire project at home, spending a few hours out of my homework time on it (bad idea). I had to balance extracurricular activities, homework and this project, in fact, I should probably be doing my AP Computer Science homework right now...
What did you learn? Over the course of this project, I pretty much learned an entire new language (apart from similarities to java). I also learned a lot from having to debug my program. As a new python programmer, I had many errors that I had to work around and learn from. I am extremely proud that I got this program done before the Harlem Shake became a thing of the past. If I had to do it again, I would try to compress the code so that it would be easier to program.
