The Arduino Starter Kit (Italy)


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 kit will help you control the physical world with sensor and actuators.

The projects in the kit are:

  • GET TO KNOW YOUR TOOLS: an introduction to the concepts you'll need to use this kit.
  • SPACESHIP INTERFACE: design to control panel for your startship.
  • LOVE-O-METER: turn the Arduino to love machine using Analog input, in fact, you will measure how hot-blooded you are.
  • COLOR MIXING LAMP: produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input.
  • MOOD CUE: use servo motor to make a mechanical gauge to point out what sort of mode you are in today.
  • 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: get the Arduino to spin a colorful pinwheel using a motor. 
  • ZOETROPE: create noving images in forward and backward with Arduino when connecting a motor to an H-bridge and some still images.
  • CRYSTAL BALL: create a crystall ball to tell you what you like to know.
  • KNOCK LOCK: tap out a 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 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.
