This kit introduces you to programming in a fun, step-by-step way. An Arduino-compatible gamepad connects wirelessly to your tablet. Using the gamepad and four interchangeable sensor modules, you play through a video game app on your tablet. In each level of the game, you have to learn a piece of the Arduino programming language and how to use it in order to solve puzzles and challenges and move forward in the game. In this way, you progressively learn the basics of coding. Soon you will be able to write programs on your computer using the four sensors and invent new applications. Following instructions in the 64-page, full-color experiment manual, you can create cool projects such as a light-sensitive drawer alarm and a LED disco light that reacts to the movements of your fingers. Learn to code by playing a video game Gaming: Use sensors to control the game with this innovative gamepad Coding: Solve puzzles and challenges in the game to learn the Arduino programming language Making: Write your own programs and develop new applications for the sensors Includes Arduino-compatible microcontroller (with Bluetooth), cable, rotary control wheel, circuit board, gamepad housing, two pushbuttons, motion sensor, temperature sensor, sound sensor, light sensor, parts for projects, CodeGamer App. Requires a tablet or smartphone running iOS or Android®. GAMING Connect the physical and digital worlds! Use the gamepad to play through 15 fun game levels on your tablet. Plug one of the four sensor bots into the gamepad to activate its special powers. The sensor box named Kelvin melts ice blocks when you warm its temperature sensor with your hand. The Decibels sensor bot will assist you if you trigger its sound sensor with noise. Lumen reveals things hidden in dark spaces when you shine a light on its light sensor. Newton will force its way through obstacles in your path if you shake the touch sensor. Level Editor: Design and create your own game levels, share them, and access other players’ levels. CODING Level by level, learn the basics of the Arduino programming language! Solve increasingly complex Arduino puzzles. Discover which program commands make the LEDs on your gamepad blink and the sound module activate. Learn how your gamepad works and how you can configure it yourself. MAKING Apply your new programming knowledge in cool projects! Use the sensors in new applications to bring your own ideas to life. Use the light sensor to count how many times a drawer is opened or program an alarm system that sends you messages. Enter the digital maker’s world and unleash your creativity.
