Arduino Esplora - new Arduino board

Based on the Leonardo, this new board has lots of pre-built sensors (sound, light, and temperature ...), an analog joystick, a three-axis accelerometer and many others features.

Price will be around $54

Comments

"Marc: Out of concern for transparency for all members: I have invited to the last event members of a new arduino meetup group I've created with some friends without asking the NJA list first, I have apologised for it. For more info you can read this thread where this issue has been raised and replied to. Feel free to add your comment here or on the NJA list."

Workshop by Eugene:

PCB / etching workshop from concept to prototype:

  • How to build your circuit using Fritzing, make a schematic, and the circuit board diagram.
  • How to prepare a copper-board, add a photo-resist layer, expose, develop, etch and drill
