Those looking to learn more about programming and electronics may be interested in a new educational coding kit called the Tinusaur OLED Display Kit. The development team at Tinusaur created the kit to provide an easy way to learn more about coding and electronics using a ATtiny85 microcontroller to measure and display sensor data. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its included components, features and projects.
The Tinusaur OLED Display Kit is latest addition to the larger Tinusaur Project created to teach more about electronics, physics, programming, microcontrollers, robotics, and many other things. “The Tinusaur OLED Display Kit is a bundle of boards, parts, and modules that you assemble yourself using our step-by-step instructions. Once the kit is assembled, you can immediately start programming it using our intuitive Blocktinu graphical interface and numerous tutorials, or skip directly to C and the Arduino IDE. In the end, you’ll have a small, battery-powered, standalone sensor node that you’ve built and programmed yourself to sense ambient temperature and relative humidity and display those data on its OLED screen.”
