Replacement:BOK-11086. We are now selling the second edition of this book which is updated for the release of Arduino 1.0. This page is for reference only.
Tom Igoe is one of the prolific actors on the Arduino scene. One of the core of 5 Arduino developers, Tom has amassed a huge volume of knowledge working with a multitude of technologies and a large number of students over the past decade. Making Things Talk is a small section of what he has learned. This book (in color!) covers a wide range: flex sensors, Bluetooth wireless, XBee wireless, USB, networks, IR remote control, RFID, force sensitive resistors, protocols, and of course, lots of LEDs. It's pretty awesome - and it's not just how to work with these neat technologies, but how to apply them in innovative projects. This is a great book to build upon a basic knowledge of Arduino. Tom does a great way of describing and teaching on a very easy to understand level, while getting complex concepts across.
