This is just a quick reminder that the DuinoKit Jr. Kickstarter project is down to less than a week. It’s already reached its funding goal, so any stragglers out there who might be looking for a fun all-in-one electronics style kit that teaches Arduino and programming, take a look at the official DuinoKit Jr. KS webpage.
Project owner, Dan Alich, has finished two successful Kickstarter projects previously, both larger versions of this kit called the DuinoKit Essentials. Dan understands the issues with manufacturing and shipping, so he’s got the experience needed to delivery the products on time for a May 2015 delivery.
It’s a very cool kit — the circuit board comes with all the electronics components already mounted — just insert the Arduino Nano (included with the kit) into he slot and you’re ready to go. The kit also comes with jumper wires and a USB cable to connect the Arduino Nano to a computer.
The portability of the kit is great, and Dan’s crammed a LOT of components into this kit, making it a sure-fire kit for giving any hobbyist (young or old) plenty of hands-on time in creating hundreds of projects. (The kit will come with a number of project cards so you won’t be starting from scratch.)
