Two Modulo educational kits, a Raspberry Pi book, and a new kit from BITalino!
Hello, and welcome back to yet another Friday Product Post. This week we have five brand-new products (or revisions) to show off to you. Modulo is now available to purchase in two varieties: The Gizmo Kit and Invention Kit. Not only that but we also have a new Getting Started with Raspberry Pi book, as well as a new biometric board from BITalino. Also take 10% off most of the catalog from 12:01 a.m. MST on 12/9 through 11:59 p.m. MST on 12/12. Check for *rules below. Without further ado, let's dive in and see what we have!
The Modulo Gizmo Kit is an entry-level kit focused on education and playful exploration. It's a great way to get started with Modulo without breaking the bank.
The Gizmo Kit provides many useful components, including the base to hold and connect up to four Modulo modules, a powerful Arduino-compatible microcontroller, a knob module (rotation encoder, push button, bright RGB LED), an infrared remote transmitter/receiver, a micro servo motor (with included servo horns) and a microUSB cable. You can build all sorts of things with the Gizmo kit!
The Modulo Invention Kit is a massive upgrade from its little sibling, the Gizmo Kit. The Invention Kit includes everything the Gizmo offers, as well as additional components for getting started with robotics! This kit even provides you with a great starting point to begin experimenting with the Particle Photon!
This is the BITalino ( r )evolution Board Kit, a (comparatively) low-cost biomedical data acquisition dev board that allows you to create projects using physiological sensors and tools. Each BITalino is presented in a "ProtoSnap style," enabling it to be programmed as a whole board or snapped apart for use in future projects. This dev board also has no shortage of programming APIs, which include Arduino, Python, Java, Android, iOS and more.
What can you do with the Raspberry Pi, the affordable computer the size of a credit card? All sorts of things! If you're learning how to program---or looking to build new electronic parts---Getting Started with Raspberry Pi will show you just how valuable that flexible little platform can be.
Updated to include coverage of the Raspberry Pi Models 2 and 3, Getting Started with Raspberry Pi takes you step-by-step through many fun and educational possibilities.
As an honorable mention this week, Actobotics has updated the old D Style Motor mount to this new E Style. The E Style Motor Mount features the ability to equip more modern motors with the same durability of the Actobotics product line!
*Take 10% off most of the catalog from 12:01 a.m. MST on 12/9 through 11:59 p.m. MST on 12/12. Sale prices are while supplies last. No backorders of sale items allowed and carts can not be combined. Sorry distributors and educators but you are not eligible for this sale.
That's it for this week, folks. As always, we hope you were able to find something that you can use to start a new project or modify an existing one. Make sure to come back next Friday, as you'll be sure to love the variety of products we have then, as well. Thanks for stopping by!
