Kit is designed to get you quickly up and running with Arduino. The Arduino microcontroller is the open source electronics prototyping platform that’s taken the maker world by storm. Using the included components, you’ll create electronics projects that sense and react to the physical world around you. Moments after opening the box, you’ll have Arduino connected to your computer, ready to start programming and receiving sensor inputs. With free software, available from the Arduino site, you can immediately start writing simple programs (called “sketches” in Arduino) before moving on to more complex experiments and full-blown Arduino projects.

This kit contains the critical parts you need to learn the Arduino hardware and Arduino programming. Even after you graduate to more complicated projects and a wider variety of sensors, the components in this kit will form the basis of your growing Arduino prototyping toolkit.

Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer. It’s an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board. Arduino can be used to develop interactive objects, taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors, and controlling a variety of lights, motors, and other physical outputs. Arduino projects can be stand-alone, or they can communicate with software running on your computer, such as Flash, Processing and MaxMSP. The boards can be purchased preassembled; the open-source IDE can be downloaded for free. The Arduino programming language is an implementation of Wiring, a similar physical computing platform, which is based on the Processing multimedia programming environment. Arduino is open source.

The Getting Started Kit will teach you how to:

  • Wire up, program & blink the most basic of actuators, an LED.
  • Connect sensors & then monitor them for changes in values.
  • Write sketches to perform tasks in response to real-world data input.
  • Work w/included sensors, switches, breadboard & jumper wires to prototype circuits that respond to light levels, touches & more.

Chibitronics Chibi Lights Circuit Stickers are a creative and fun way to learn electronics. Circuit stickers are LED circuits on peel-and-stick stickers. Build circuits without soldering, plugging wires, or clips. Instead, use the stickers with conductive tapes to draw circuits on paper and other crafts. Learn to build circuits while make interactive artworks. It’s easy, fun, safe and creative.

Our Chibitronics Starter Kit comes with the illustrated Circuit Sticker Sketchbook. The Sketchbook walks you though five circuit concepts including parallel circuits, switches and resistance-based sensors. Every activity comes with a circuit theory lesson, a template with drawing activity and then an open-ended activity for you to design and create your own circuits. Since the circuits are completed right on the pages of the book, you will have an interactive sketchbook of working circuits to refer to as you design your own projects. Best of all, you’ll be able to learn new electronics concepts while also expressing yourself in whole new ways.

Use these peel-and-stick circuits to add electronics to any sticker-friendly surface: paper, fabric, plastic, the sky’s the limit!   Circuit Stickers are an approachable way to learn and create electronics through craft, whether you’re just starting out with circuits, lighting up your favorite art, craft or science project.
