Introducing the Johnny Five Inventor's Kit

Johnny-Five Inventor's Kit

The First Kit Available for Developing Projects Using the Tessel 2 and the Johnny-Five Robotics and IoT Platform

The J5IK empowers users to build internet-connected, JavaScript-powered hardware projects by marrying the ubiquitous language with the Tessel 2 single-board computer and several components to get users started immediately. This kit:
  • Provides a powerful foundation for IoT projects
  • Includes everything needed to complete 14 circuits
  • Does not require previous programming experience or soldering
  • Connects users with a thriving community and exemplary documentation
  • Supports beginner and more advanced projects

Although the applications are limitless, the kit allows users to control and read external sensors and displays, control motors, and use and learn JavaScript.

One of the primary goals of this kit is to support software developers in going from code on the screen to making things happen in real life; conversely, the kit supports hardware developers with tools that make it easier to build web-connected projects.
