The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit for the Arduino 101® board is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with embedded electronics using the Intel® Curie-based Arduino 101 board.
This 101 SIK includes everything you need to complete 21 circuits that will teach you how to control and read the on-board and external sensors, control the Arduino 101 board through your phone, detect and analyze different sounds, and much more. Don’t worry; you won’t need any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit. The philosophy behind this kit is that anyone can (and should) play around with cutting-edge electronics. After using this 101 SIK, you’ll have the know-how to start creating your own projects and experiments. From building robots and game controllers to IoT and data logging, the world will be your oyster.
The online Experiment Guide for the Arduino 101 board contains step-by-step instructions on how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained, and troubleshooting tips are included in case something goes wrong.
The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone comfortable reading code libraries or anyone looking for an alternative to the original SparkFun Inventor’s Kit.
Note: The mold used to create our SIK carrying cases broke during their last production when it moved from China to the United States. Therefore, all units of the SIK Special Edition will not have a the normal carrying case when you receive them, but instead one of our tried and true red boxes at a reduced price. Unfortunately, we have run out of our alloted amount of cases that we can send out after the fact. This version of the Special Edition SIK will NOT include a black carrying case and it will not be sent afterward. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, we hope to have our regular SIK back as soon as possible.
