Assembling a custom Arduino starter kit

Assembling a custom Arduino starter kit

Buying an off the shelf Arduino starter kit could be very expensive. Instead I decided to assemble my own.

The last couple of months I have ordered lots of Arduino components. These components are the start of my custom Arduino starter kit. Next I will start posting experiments, which I later will bundle into an ebook. Below is a list of all the components used in my custom Arduino starter kit:

  1. Sorry for the late reply. Currently not so much. There were a few other projects which needed a higher priority. I was working on controlling a LED with my iPad via the ethernet shield which almost worked 🙂
