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 includes 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 sort of things with the Gizmo Kit!

Modulo hardware makes it a breeze to assemble the electronics for a project, and we want to make writing software for it as easy as possible too. The provided libraries for Arduino, Python and Particle will help you do just that. You never have to worry about pin numbers, registers or other low-level details. Simply create objects for each Modulo and interact with them in a straightforward and intuitive way.

  • 1x Modulo Base
  • 1x Controller Module
  • 1x Knob Module
  • 1x IR Remote Module
  • 1x Micro Servo Motor
  • 1x MicroUSB Cable (1.5ft)

Modulo Gizmo Kit Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Robotics

This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.

2 Robotics

Skill Level: Rookie - You will be required to know some basics about motors, basic motor drivers and how simple robotic motion can be accomplished.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Customer Comments

  • This is Erin from Modulo. I just wanted to leave a comment for the reviewer who found the documentation lacking. Our docs (at docs.modulo.co) are all up to date. I think maybe you thought they were out of date because of a 2015 copyright notice? Regardless, if you find anything confusing or lacking feel free to shoot me an email ( erin@modulo.co ) or post on our forums ( community.modulo.co ) and I’ll do my best to help you out!

Okay, but not teh Arduino experience expected

It worked ok, but not the straight forward experience expected. Will be returning. Found documentation was mostly from 2015, and not many updates.
