In the Maker Shed: Advanced Arduino Starter Kit


Bridging the gap between the “real world” and your computer, the Advanced Arduino Starter Kit from the Maker Shed takes you further into the world of physical computing. We’ve included all sorts of cool electronic parts this time, along with our best selling Making Things Talk book by Tom Igoe. You’ll experience what the tens of thousands of engineers, designers, artists and hobbyists already know about this awesome and educational prototyping platform.

    Needs a servo. Seriously. Even a small, cheap one is better than nothing. Toss in a cross-shaped horn for it, too.

    If you have a servo, the phrase “physical computing” extends so much further than “buttons, blinkenlights, and noisemakers”. It reaches into robotics, physical automation, new kinds of games, and so on. Without a servo, how well are you served?

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
