The official Arduino team has today announced the availability of the new Genuino Starter Kit in the US, containing everything you need to be able to build 15 Arduino projects.
The Arduino Genuino Starter Kit also includes step-by-step tutorials via the Project Book offering a hands-on way to learn about Arduino and create a variety of different circuits that can be usedIndividually or combined to create something more complicated in the future.
The Zoe Romano over on the Arduino website explains more :
Genuino Starter Kit, like the Arduino Starter Kit, is a great way to get started with making, coding and electronics!
Genuino is Arduino.cc’s sister-brand created by Arduino co-founders Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, and David Mellis, the Arduino.cc team and community.
This brand is used for boards and products sold outside the US and the Genuino Starter Kit is the first product of the series!
The Starter Kit is based on lessons Arduino’s founders have learned teaching their own classes: if you start with the assumption that learning to make digital technologies is simple and accessible, you can really make it so.
Projects you can make:
01 GET TO KNOW YOUR TOOLS an introduction to the concepts you’ll need to use this kit
02 SPACESHIP INTERFACE design the control panel for your starship
03 LOVE-O-METER measure how hot-blooded you are
04 COLOR MIXING LAMP produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input
05 MOOD CUE clue people in to how you’re doing
06 LIGHT THEREMIN create a musical instrument you play by waving your hands
07 KEYBOARD INSTRUMENT play music and make some noise with this keyboard
08 DIGITAL HOURGLASS a light-up hourglass that can stop you from working too much
09 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 LOGO control your personal computer from your Genuino
15 HACKING BUTTONS create a master control for all your devices!
