<p><B>GENIE</B> is a low-cost microcontroller programming system designed exclusively for schools and colleges. The free, user-friendly flowchart software allows you to add intelligence and control to your new and existing design projects. No separate programmer is required and downloading is via a USB or serial cable.<BR><BR>Available from <B>Rapid</B> are three exclusive kits that have been designed to provide a fun and challenging introduction to the <B>GENIE</B> microcontroller system.<BR><BR><B>13-6009 GENIE 08 Activity kit</B><BR>This kit provides a great introduction to the <B>GENIE</B> system. It allows students to control two LEDs and a piezo sounder for making sounds. These outputs can be made to respond to a push switch (for sensing touch) and an LDR (for sensing light).<BR><BR><B>13-6011 GENIE 08 Project kit</B><BR>This 8-pin kit is ideal for adding intelligence to student projects. It is based on an 8-pin <B>GENIE</B> 08 microcontroller providing off-board connections for 2 digital inputs (1 of which can also be used for sensing an analogue signal) and 3 outputs (one of which is buffered to provide medium-power output suitable for controlling lamps and small motors).<BR><BR><B>13-6012 GENIE 08 Jukebox kit</B><BR>This kit allows students to have fun with 2-channel polyphonic music by making use of <B>GENIE's</B> unique ability to play several notes at the same time. Two LED outputs flash in time to the music. A single digital input switch is provided to control the music, such as when creating a musical box project that starts the music playing when the lid is opened.<BR><BR>The kits are designed to work with the <B>GENIE</B> flowchart programming software for Microsoft Windows™ and there are free online resources and community website at <A href="http://www.genieonline.com">www.genieonline.com</A>.</p>

Q. Is it possible to add a motion sensor to this chip!?...and if so how please
A. Hi Glen, thanks for your question.
There are no direct provisions on the board for this. You will need to design something that would trigger an input on motion. A typical security alarm PIR has a relay switch that could be used in place of an input switch for example.
