The innovative tile design allows near infinite customisation making the Force a true drag & drop solution for adding High-Speed remote control and/or communication to your personal projects.
Simply drag & drop the tiles to create your controller. Resize, and customise the look and feel of the tiles to suit your needs.
Create as many controllers as you want. There are no limits to what you can make with the Force.
Built on top of the TCP/IP protocol there is little overhead in communication performance allowing for instant data transmission.
Each tile is a fully customisable UIKit object allowing for native performance. There are also additional tiles and more to come.
There are currently 15 unqiue tiles to choose from, with more to come! Each tile with its own documentation.
The Force app allows sharing of controllers so more people can enjoy the joy of creating something.
*If you are creating an Instructable for a project incorporating the Force, please be sure to tag it with TheForceProject tag.
A remote controlled, 3D Printed Tankbot controlled by a Raspberry Pi. It has a webcam which outputs a MJPEG stream which is viewed on the Force app alongside the controls so you don't have to see the robot to control it.
The Force Project is an an app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and at the moment a Python companion server, which together will make it super easy to add fast, native remote controllability to any personal electronics project. The goal of the Force Project is to make the wireless control of robots, etc very easy to do and to spread the joy of creating something new. We believe the Force can suit many fields, but in particular in the Secondary Education field, where new, practical, and interactive methods of learning about technology is always sought after.
The Force app is not likely to be free, but we will provide discounts to bulk educational purchases. Price TBD

Please include the following for a tile:
Please include the following for a feature:
You don't have to put too much detail into the request, but more is generally better.
We appreciate your support for the Force Project and hope that our implementation of the tile is what you wanted and will benefit everyone.
The Force app supports iOS 8.0 and above on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
The Force Server is written in Python, and hence is platform independent. The only requirements being, that the computer be somehow connected to a Wi-Fi network and be capable of running Python v2.7+. We highly recommend using Raspbery Pis, as it is a great DIY platform which supports connecting to a network via either Ethernet or Wi-Fi and runs Python v2.7+.
Currently, the only supported language is English, but most of the content is designed to be intuitive and self-explanatory so only a very basic understanding of English is necessary to use the app.
We are actively checking out new projects on Instructables with the tag TheForceProject and will find the best documented and most interesting, innovative projects and feature them on our website. In addition to this, you can email us a link to your project here on Instructables and we will be happy to review it.
