Arduino101 Interact with Arduino 101 devices and connected peripherals. Requires the BluetoothLE extension above. MIT App Inventor Arduino101.aix Via GitHub
ImageProcessor ImageProcessor can do a weighted combine of two images, return the greyscale of an image. Download this demo. Justus Raju ImageProcessor.aix
ScaleDetector Adds as multitouch scale gesture detector to a Canvas. See Using App Inventor extensions to implement multitouch for an explanation of how this works. Hal Abelson ScaleDetector.aix
SoundAnalysis Multimedia component that analyzes the pitch of a sound through the microphone and returns it. It can be used as an input to different situations, for instance to control some components with a specific sound whistle(pitch > 500Hz) or clap(pitch > 2000Hz). Mouhamadou Oumar Sall SoundAnalysis.aix
SoundPressureLevel Measures the sound pressure level using the microphone and returns the data in decibels. Further documentation for users and developers can be found here. RIT App Inventor SoundPressureLevel.aix
