Description: Meet Mr. Roboto! He's an Arduino-compatible development board designed to be used as a teaching tool for Arduino programming. All of the surface mount components come pre-soldered so a few minutes of simple through-hole soldering is all it takes to get him up and running. After the kit is put together, the on board sensors, buzzer and LCD screen make an excellent platform for learning how to write code for physical computing.

Mr. Roboto's "hair" is an FTDI programming header. Simply connect an FTDI breakout board and select "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (5V, 16MHz) w/ ATMega328" under the boards menu in Arduino 1.0. Below, you'll find an archive of well-commented educational example sketches and an accompanying "readme" file describing what each one does in order of complexity. This board, combined with the example code which you can download below, is a great way to introduce students (or yourself) to physical computing and get started writing code. Thank you very much, Mr. Roboto!

We've made a minor change to the hardware, the new version has a new voltage regulator. This doesn't change the way the kit works, though, no worries.

Features:

  • ATMega328 running at 16MHz, Arduino compatible!
  • On-Board Light and Temperature Sensors
  • Piezo Buzzer and LCD Screen Provide Feedback
  • Powered by 2 Included AA batteries
  • Surface-Mount Components are Already Soldered

  • My son built one of these at the Vermont Mini-Maker Faire this past weekend. Very nice, and it went to school for show and tell the next day.

    One change that I would suggest: the buzzer makes it difficult to reach the LCD pins with the soldering iron. Installing the buzzer after the LCD rather than before would make assembly easier.

  • Which FTDI I shall use to program this board , the 5V or 3.3V version ? Thanks .

  • It would be really nice if you guys sold the mini LCDs as a separate product
