To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.
The ProtoSnap Pro Mini is one of the more interesting Arduino kits. Manufactured on a single PCB, it includes a preassembled Arduino Pro Mini (0.7″×1.3″) and snap-off accessory boards like an FTDI Basic Breakout board, buzzer, RGB LED, light sensor, pushbutton, and a general-purpose
protoboard for wiring up your own custom components. Snap off each piece, and you’ll see there are holes to solder pins, wires, or however it needs to connect. Then you can load your project’s sketch onto the Pro Mini immediately to start testing. Finally, the documentation is concise, for those just getting started with Arduino, and even enjoyable to read. This is a great kit for Arduino lovers of all experience levels.
