Want to create devices that interact with the physical world? This cookbook is perfect for anyone who wants to experiment with the popular Arduino microcontroller and programming environment. You’ll find more than 200 tips and techniques for building a variety of objects and prototypes such as toys, detectors, robots, and interactive clothing that can sense and respond to touch, sound, position, heat, and light.
The most comprehensive book on the Arduino platform I have read. Loaded with excellent examples and references, Arduino: A Quick-Start Guide gets beginners up and running in no time and provides experienced developers with a wealth of inspiration for their own projects. Haroon Baig Creator of the Twitwee Clock, Excellently paced for those who have never experimented with electronics or microcontrollers before and packed with valuable tidbits even for advanced Arduino tinkerers.
Build a robot that responds to electrical activity in your brain—it’s easy and fun. If you’re familiar with Arduino and have basic mechanical building skills, this book will show you how to construct a robot that plays sounds, blinks lights, and reacts to signals from an affordable electroencephalography (EEG) headband. Concentrate and the robot will move. Focus more and it will go faster. Let your mind wander and the robot will slow down.
You’ll find complete instructions for building a simple robot chassis with servos, wheels, sensors, LEDs, and a speaker.
The long-awaited iOS 6 SDK (Software Development Kit) is finally out, and we need
to learn about all the great features that this release offers us. Apple did a great job

that you are ready to start learning all there is to know about iOS 6 SDK, and
that is fantastic.
