Children or adults looking for an easy way to start learning about programming code and electronic circuits, may find the wireless LightUp Faraday Kit an excellent learning tool.
The kit comprises of snap together electronic components that can then be programmed using the companion tablet application that connects to the circuit wirelessly.
Watch the video below to learn more about the drag-and-drop coding kit and how it might help you or your children learn more bout creating circuits and electronic projects. Its creators LightUp explain more:
“No one should have to see the words “syntax error”, especially not an 8-year-old. With LightUp Code we’re bringing drag-and-drop programming to hardware. It’s inspired by Scratch so anyone familiar with that can get started in seconds. If you’re not, no problem. It’s super easy to get started. Want to see it action? Head over here for a sneak peek of an early version. We even made a virtual kit just for you! Got an Arduino Uno? Awesome. Just plug it in and program it straight from your browser.
Faraday is 100% wireless. There’s no more painful driver setup, sticking wires into tiny slots or having to lug a heavy laptop around. Just hit run and your code is programmed onto your project and starts running in seconds. Bluetooth works both ways, so your projects can also talk to your iPad and make internet-connected projects!”
The LightUp Faraday Kit project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $96,485 in pledges, so if you think LightUp Faraday Kit is something you could benefit from, pledges start from $79.
