We are eager to announce the launch of the official Arduino Starter Kit! We have been working hard together in developing a complete selection of 15 projects that will let you become a true arduino tinkerer!
But that’s more:
The new starter kit has been developed together with a series of ten video tutorials hosted by Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi, which can be viewed at www.rs-components.com/arduino. Ideally used in conjunction with the videos, the kit provides an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It contains all of the essential components required to start programming with the Arduino Uno board, and a guidebook featuring 15 different projects, which are designed to evolve the user from beginner to professional level. Comprising a motor, servomotor and driver, the kit also offers particular benefits to users wishing to apply mechatronics to their designs.

E’ terminato da qualche giorno il primo capitolo dell’#arduinotour, a Roma. E’ stata una esperienza molto interessante che ci ha fatto capire cosa funziona nel nostro metodo di insegnamento , ma che ci ha permesso di aggiustare il tiro su alcune mancanze comunicative dettate dell’accumularsi di eventi (e.g. abbiamo informato gli utenti iscritti alla presentazione del venerdì in ritardo, e ce ne scusiamo).
Detto questo, ci siamo sforzati di restituire quanto più possibile del materiale prodotto al workshop a tutti i nostri lettori. I progetti emersi sono stati tre (vedi video sopra / guarda il set sul flickr), e devo ammettere che il livello é molto alto per un workshop base. Tutti i codici dei progetti sono online sul nostro github. Non abbiamo usato particolari periferiche fatta eccezione dell’Arduino Wifi Shield, dell’Ethernet Shield,di un paio di Sensori di Alcohol di Parallax e di cinque FSR oltre ovviamente ad un roverino facilmente reperibile online.
Chi fa un salto?
The good natured Arduino co-founder and his team went to talk at TED global and rocked the stage (Yes, old news!). But, here is some previously unseen backstage travelogue of Massimo Banzi and Federico Vanzati, shot through the lenses of Davide Gomba. Just having some fun before the serious talks!
Alasdair Allan, author of Learning iPhone Programming, Programming iPhone Sensors, and iOS Sensor Apps with Arduino, sat down with MAKE’s Dale Dougherty to talk about getting iOS devices and Arduino talking to each other.
The words of an Astrophysicist turned maker!
Sebastien is the creator of one of the most interesting FPGA platforms I have seen recently. I posted something about it last year. Back then he was just prototyping his boards. Currently the OSHW design can be found at different retailers and it is so stable that can be used for production of visuals and art installations. He named it Milkymist and is now promoting it around the world.
The Milkymist One is an open hardware live video synthesizer. Connect a camera and a videoprojector, press the power button, and seconds later, everything you film becomes live psychedelic effects of color and light. Point the camera at a dancer on stage, at people attending your party, at toys, use UV-glow paint… there are no limits to creativity! If no camera setup is available, the Milkymist One can produce purely generative effects which react to the ambient sound, making it an ideal option for music bands, clubs and party organizers who want a turnkey solution for simple visual effects.
Lekernel, as you will find him on email lists and the like, has even left a port for devices to send control commands over serial port. One of his examples includes using an Arduino board to read any kind of sensor and send the data encoded as MIDI to the Milkymist. You can take part of a workshop with Sebastian using this technique. Take a look at his website for dates. The next one will be in Berlin on October 1st. It is free as in free beer!
