This kit walks you through the basics of using the Arduino in a hands-on way. You'll learn through building several creative projects. The kit includes a selection of the most common and useful electronic components with a book of 15 projects. Starting the basics of electronics, to more complex projects, the Arduino Uno starter kit will help you control the physical world with sensor and actuators. The Arduino Software is downloadable and supports Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (32-bit/64-bit).
Product Note: The USB cable assembly in the Uno R3 starter kit mates easily but does not UN mate easily. Arduino is aware of the issue and suggest the cable be removed by holding the USB connector on the Arduino board and while pulling shifting the plug side to side until removed.
The projects in the Arduino starter kit are:
01 GET TO KNOW YOUR TOOLS - An introduction to the concepts you'll need to use this kit
04 COLOR MIXING LAMP - Produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input
05 MOOD CUE - Clue people in to how you're doing
06 LIGHT THEREMIN - Create a musical instrument you play by waving your hands
07 KEYBOARD INSTRUMENT - Play music and make some noise with this keyboard
08 DIGITAL HOURGLASS - A light-up hourglass that can stop you from working too much
09 MOTORIZED PINWHEEL - A color wheel that will have your head spinning
10 ZOETROPE - Create a mechanical animation you can play forward or reverse
11 CRYSTAL BALL - A mystical tour to answer all your tough question
12 KNOCK LOCK - Tap out the secret code to open the door
13 TOUCHY-FEEL LAMP - A lamp that responds to your touch
14 TWEAK THE ARDUINO LOGO - Control your personal computer from your Arduino starter kit
15 HACKING BUTTONS - Create a master control for all your devices!
Once you've mastered this knowledge, you'll have a palette of software and circuits that you can use to create something beautiful, and make someone smile with what you invent using the Uno R3 starter kit. Then build it, hack it and share it. Because Arduino is you!
