J. Clark Scott has had a long and diverse career in the computer industry, starting with building computers and their parts at companies such as Intel and IBM. Eventually he graduated to writing consumer software, with four nationally marketed titles to his credit. He noticed how confused some of his friends were about computers and gave them lectures to teach them how simple the basics really are. It was at that time that the idea for this book was born.
Arduino is a programmable circuit board that is being used by everyone from scientists, programmers, and hardware hackers to artists, designers, hobbyists, and engineers in order to add interactivity to objects and projects and experiment with programming and electronics. This easy-to-understand book is an ideal place to start if you are interested in learning more about Arduino's vast capabilities. Featuring an array of cool projects, this Arduino beginner guide walks you through every step of each of the featured projects so that you can acquire a clear understanding of the different aspects of the Arduino board.Introduces Arduino basics to provide you with a solid foundation of understanding before you tackle your first project Features a variety of fun projects that show you how to do everything from automating your garden's watering system to constructing a keypad entry system, installing a tweeting cat flap, building a robot car, and much more Provides an easy, hands-on approach to learning more about electronics, programming, and interaction design for Makers of all ages
