This kit is an open source clone of the original Arduino board with a myriad of accessory boards, controllers and components. The Arduino platform is effectively an entirely open platform of hardware and software that allows the electronics beginner to learn, make and build electronics projects with RELATIVE ease. (It’s not easy!!!)
plug the board into your computer and you can program the boards microcontroller to function in almost any conceivable way. A network of ‘makers’ and coders have built up around this platform and I gotta say- I would have loved this growing up. Hell I love it now, despite how genuinely challenging it is.
