Next 21st of September Arduino Tour is finally landing in London for a one-day workshop, starting at 10am at The Maker Works London, UK. (max. 18 people).

This edition of the official Arduino workshop is focused on the world of the Internet of Things and will allow participants to experiment with a botanical kit including an Arduino YÚN, plants and sensors. The workshop teaches you how to turn your plants and virtually any object into connected, responsive elements using Arduino YÚN.

Arduino YÚN is the combination of a classic Arduino Leonardo and a small Linux computer, able to connect to a network or Internet via Ethernet or WiFi. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or even a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online.

    What’s the name of the botanical kit?

    Hi,

    the kits we’ll bring to the workshop include the Arduino YUN, some basic Tinkerkit sensor and actuator modules, all the cables and sensors for gardening.
    All the materials are lent just for the duration of the workshop.

    I want to get to this but transport is the problem
    I have a Yun and it works fine on wifi. So the garden sensors is what I am after.
