Modulo Invention Kit

The Modulo Invention Kit is a massive upgrade from its little sibling, the Gizmo Kit. The Invention Kit includes everything the Gizmo offers, plus additional components for getting started with robotics! This kit even provides you with a great starting point to begin experimenting with the Particle Photon!

Each Invention Kit comes with both the Modulo Controller (for programming your project in Arduino and Python) and a Particle Photon (for creating Internet-connected projects using the Particle IDE). In addition to all of the components of the Gizmo Kit, you will find a motor driver board, protoboard, LCD module, joystick module, micro servo module and cables to give some of your parts distance from the Modulo base. All modules can hook into a base board at once, so you won't find yourself with any shortage of real estate.

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.

Modulo Invention 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.

3 Robotics

Skill Level: Competent - You may need an understanding of servo motors and how to drive them. Additionally, you may need some fundamental understanding of motor controllers.
See all skill levels


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.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

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.
