Arduino starter kit review

The starter kit is a great way to get started with Arduino, coding and electronics!

This article will show you the variety of different Arduino starter kits available on market: from original (offered by Arduino) to other options (for example, ChinaUSA)

1. Arduino GENUINO STARTER KIT

This Starter Kit price is 79.90 Euro. The Starter Kit includes the components you need to make 15 fun projects following the step-by-step tutorials on the Project Book.

The Starter 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.

Projects you can make:

  1. GET TO KNOW YOUR TOOLS an introduction to the basics
  2. SPACESHIP INTERFACE design the control panel for your starship
  3. LOVE-O-METER measure how hot-blooded you are
  4. COLOR MIXING LAMP produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input
  5. MOOD CUE clue people in to how you’re doing
  6. LIGHT THEREMIN create a musical instrument you play by waving your hands
  7. KEYBOARD INSTRUMENT play music and make some noise with this keyboard
  8. DIGITAL HOURGLASS a light-up hourglass that can stop you from working too much
  9. MOTORIZED PINWHEEL a colored wheel that will make your head spin
  10. ZOETROPE create a mechanical animation you can play forward or reverse
  11. CRYSTAL BALL a mystical tour to answer all your tough questions
  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
  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. Then build it, hack it and share it. You can find the Arduino code for all these projects within the Arduino IDE, click on File-> Examples ->10.StarterKit. Have a look at these video tutorials for a project by project walk-through.
