The Gravity Starter Kit for Arduino is a plug & play electronic toolkit that gives beginners and creators of Arduino the most enjoyable experience of learning and playing with the Arduino platform!
The Gravity Starter Kit includes a DFRduino UNO R3 microcontroller, which works just like the Arduino UNO, and 12 most popular and interesting electrical components and sensors. With the IO expansion shield, the sensors can be connected directly to the board without jumper or breadboard cables. The sensors in the kit belong to the DFRobot Gravity Series. These sensors are built highly modularized and interact with microcontrollers with a 3-pin pinout. In addition, different types of sensors can be easily identified by the logo printed on the back of the PCB board. All components included in the kit are fully compatible with Arduino microcontrollers. With the Gravity Starter Kit, making your design is as simple as building blocks.
The Gravity Starter Kit is also provided with a tutorial, which aims to help Arduino learners understand Arduino programming. The tutorial goes through the installation of the software, the Arduino IDE and its programming language, and then teaches you how to build an electrical circuit, how to use different electrical components and their signaling. It also includes instructions for building projects to turn on an LED to eventually use various components to make a real project such as "Fire Alarm" or "Weather Station". The tutorial is full of graphics and it is written in a simple way that anyone could build their own project using the Gravity Beginner Kit without difficulty.
The Arduino Due is the first Arduino board based on a 32-bit ARM core microcontroller. With 54 digital input/output pins, 12 analog inputs, it is the perfect board for powerful larger scale Arduino projects.
The Arduino Mega 2560 is a microcontroller based on the ATmega2560 suitable for those who are looking for more elaborate projects, that need a greater number of inputs and outputs than the Arduino UNO.
This is the SparkFun XBee Explorer Dongle unit for the Digi XBee Modules line. With the XBee Explorer Dongle, you can connect the unit directly to your USB port and act as a Gateway between your Computer and the XBee. No cables are needed! This unit works with all XBee Modules, including Series 1 and 2.5, Standard and Pro Version. The Voltage Regulator works up to 500mA.
