Inside each Kinoma Create V2 is a power-efficient 800 MHz ARM CPU, Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, a color capacitive touchscreen, and tons of I/O for sensors. Also on-board each Kinoma Create are 66 hardware pins (50 in the back, 16 in the front) that implement Digital Input, Digital Output, Analog-to-Digital Input (A2D), Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), I2C, and Serial Input/Output.
Kinoma Create V2 has its own integrated development environment (IDE), Kinoma Studio, that includes lots of sample projects to adapt and learn from. Wireless debugging helps make that process a pleasure. And a built-in simulator lets you code and test even when your Kinoma Create isn’t nearby. The same IDE lets you easily build Android and iOS “companion” apps for your creations, using the same exact platform and code that you’ll use to develop with Kinoma Create.
Note: This item may take longer to process due to battery installed in the equipment and therefore does not qualify for same-day shipping policy. Additionally, these batteries can not be shipped via Ground or Economy methods to Alaska or Hawaii. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
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.
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.

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.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

This is such a simple and easy device to conviently test dozens of sensors that I have without going through the hassle of programming. It has been 100% reliable and the analog and digital graphics are quite handy.
