The quick, easy way to leap into the fascinating world of physical computing

Arduino is no ordinary circuit board. Whether you're an artist, a designer, a programmer, or a hobbyist, Arduino lets you learn about and play with electronics. You'll discover how to build a variety of circuits that can sense or control real-world objects, prototype your own product, and even create interactive artwork. This handy guide is exactly what you need to build your own Arduino project — what you make is up to you!

  • Learn by doing – start building circuits and programming your Arduino with a few easy examples — right away!
  • Easy does it – work through Arduino sketches line by line, and learn how they work and how to write your own
  • Solder on! – don't know a soldering iron from a curling iron? No problem! You'll learn the basics and be prototyping in no time
  • Kitted out – discover new and interesting hardware to turn your Arduino into anything from a mobile phone to a Geiger counter
  • Become an Arduino savant – find out about functions, arrays, libraries, shields, and other tools that let you take your Arduino project to the next level
  • Get social – teach your Arduino to communicate with software running on a computer to link the physical world with the virtual world

Open the book and find:

  • Help choosing an Arduino starter kit
  • How to set up your Arduino and install the Arduino Development Environment
  • Projects you can build that produce light, sound, and motion
  • Instructions on prototyping using breadboards and a soldering iron
  • How to use different inputs and outputs in your projects
  • Tips for hacking existing hardware
  • Ways to extend Arduino's capabilities with libraries and shields
