What modules are included?
The cloudBits kit comes with everything you need to get yourself set up. This kit uses more power than other kits so only use with the USB power module. Use the push button and sound triggers to set off your circuit and see what you can make with the LED and servo outputs. The heart of this kit is the cloudBit module which allows you to connect to the internet.
What can I learn with this kit?
Learn how to create a circuit with the easy to follow colour coded modules. Blue units represent power and come first in the circuit. Pink modules represent inputs, controlling the modules that come after them. Output modules are green and perform functions like lighting up or moving. Orange modules represent connectors, which you can use to connect two or more modules together or even connect the kit to the internet.
Experiment with creating software controlled bit kits and design something unique. Tinker and try out new ideas without programming, soldering and wiring. The kit comes with a mounting board to help build your kits and provide support.
