The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit for Arduino 101 is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with embedded electronics using the Intel Curie based Arduino 101. This SIK includes everything you need to complete 20 circuits that will teach you how to control and read the on-board and external sensors, create Android applications to control your Arduino 101, detect and analyze different sounds, and much more. Don’t worry, you won’t need any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit. The philosophy behind this kit is to teach the lesson that anyone can (and should) play around with cutting edge electronics. After using this SIK youâ€™ll have the know-how to start creating your own projects and experiments, from building robots and game controllers to IoT and data logging the world will be your oyster.
The on-line Experiment Guide for the Arduino 101 (that will be released when the Arduino 101 SIK starts shipping) contains step by step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained and even includes troubleshooting tips if something goes wrong.
The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone comfortable reading code libraries or if you are looking for an alternative to the original SparkFun Inventorâ€™s Kit.
Note: The Arduino 101 Inventor’s Kit is only available for customers in the USA. If you are located in Canada, the EU, or other locations be sure to check out the Genuino 101 or its SIK instead. Additionally, this product may be delayed by 2-3 business days to verify shipping address. We will contact you after you place your order if we need anything.
Note: The Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and framework developed by Intel is scheduled to be open sourced in March 2016. Until then, it’s not possible to interface with it directly; only the Arduino core can do it via static mailboxes.
