The Electronic Brick Starter Kit for Arduino is a modular physical computing kit compatible with the Arduino platform. It includes an Arduino Uno, 6v regulated power supply, and an Electronic Brick Chassis for interfacing sensors, and a variety of modular sensors and output devices. You can build many interesting projects even without soldering skills, making this kit a great starting point for beginners looking to learn more about microcontrollers, programming, and electronic sensory!
Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).
