Using Arduino, you can join the DIY movement and build an amazing spectrum of projects - limited only by your imagination! Until now, however, most Arduino books and manuals have demanded extensive "geekitude." Not this one: it assumes you know nothing about Arduino or electronics, guides you gently up the learning curve, walks you through several real projects, and leaves you ready to do anything you want with Arduino.
This lush, 4-color guide is loaded with step-by-step photos that guide you every step of the way. Your guide, John Baichtal, founding member of legendary hackerspace Twin Cities Maker, is author of Hack This! 24 Incredible Hackerspace Projects from the DIY Movement: he's one of the world'sleading experts in getting newcomers up-to-speed with hardware projects.
Baichtal's Arduino for Beginners starts with an easy crash course in Arduino and electronics, and teaches all you need to know about safety, tools, soldering, and more. You'll learn how to:
- Detect intrusion with lasers and IR
- Set up Arduino Bluetooth connections
- Create useful Arduino programs from scratch
- Use sensors and water controls
- Conrol DC motors, servos, and stepper motors
- Create projects that keep track of time
- Safely control high-voltage circuits
- Harvest useful parts from junk electronics, and more
Along the way, you won't just walk through building several practical projects: you'll learn how to construct professional enclosures, so your projects won't just look like tangled wires and bare circuit boards - they'll actually fit and function comfortably in your home!
