Digital Sandbox: an Arduino board with 8 integrated electronic modules
With the SparkFun Inventor Kit, you could discover, prototype and program lots of circuits with a few essential modules, a programming board, a breadboard and a complete guide. But it required patience and concentration to assemble, connect and prototype – before even beginning programming!
The Digital Sandbox board is an Arduino board that already includes the modules you’ll need to carry out a total of 13 experiments. Potentiometer, bar graph, temperature and light sensors – everything is already there, ready for use and, above all, ready to be programmed! If you’re a teacher and want to slip a coding lesson into an already busy schedule, or an ever-so-slightly impatient electronics enthusiast, this will save you bags of time.
An Arduino-compatible environment to learn about coding
You can use the mini-USB cable to connect your Sandbox to your computer. This gives you a Blockly-type Arduino-compatible programming software, offering a visual environment accessible to anyone from the age of 8. It comes with a complete guide, allowing budding electronics engineers to find out how about fifteen different circuits work, without no need for a soldering iron or any complex technical operations. Want to take things further? Its 3-pin connector allows you to connect that extra little feature your creation was lacking!
