Directly from the people behind what is, undoubtedly, the most popular microcontroller in the world, this kit is absolutely packed with top-notch educational content and hardware. The included 170 page guide book goes above and beyond when walking you through the basics of using electronics with an Arduino. The kit provokes critical thinking the best way you can, with hands on learning. Starting off on the basics of electricity and moving right through to making a universal remote for the home, you're guaranteed to learn a bunch of awesome stuff. You'll learn it all by creating 15 different and extremely creative projects that build upon each other..

The projects in the kit are as below, there is also an entire playlist of YouTube tutorials with Massimo Banzi if you enjoy the Audio/Visual learning style:

  • GETTING TO KNOW YOUR TOOLS - An introduction to the concepts you'll need to use this kit
  • SPACESHIP INTERFACE - Design a control panel for your startship
  • LOVE-O-METER - Measure how hot-blooded you are
  • COLOR MIXING LAMP - Produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input
  • MOOD CUE - Clue people in to how you're doing
  • LIGHT THEREMIN - Create a musical instrument you play by waving your hands
  • KEYBOARD INSTRUMENT - Play music and make some noise with this keyboard
  • DIGITAL HOURGLASS - A light-up hourglass that can stop you from working too much
  • MOTORIZED PINWHEEL - A color wheel that will have your head spinning
  • ZOETROPE - Create a mechanical animation you can play forward or reverse
  • CRYSTAL BALL - A mystical tour to answer all your tough question
  • KNOCK LOCK - Tap out the secret code to open the door
  • TOUCHY-FEEL LAMP - A lamp that responds to your touch
  • TWEAK THE ARDUINO LOGO - Control your personal computer from your Arduino
  • HACKING BUTTONS - Create a master control for all your devices!

Once you’ve mastered these 15 projects, you’ll have a palette of software, circuits and knowledge that you can use to create something interesting and fun. It's the nature of Arduino to make someone smile with what you invent. Essentially you will build it, hack it and share it. It's the core of Arduino!

  • Coffee Grinder With Arduino
  • Using a few bits and pieces, this ordinary coffee grinder now has two presets to run the motor for a programmable length of time. The idea being that the grinder running for a set amount of time will deliver a certain amount of coffee each button press meaning the beans can be stored unground, keeping them fresher for longer. I completed this project for a friend, Ian, who lives for coffee. Ian wanted the same functionality in h...

  • We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory.   All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
