10 inventions that aren’t in your Arduino Coding Kit

Get with the programming.

March 31, 2017

There’s so much that your child (or you!) can make with our Arduino Coding Kit. With a DIY computer mouse, an Analog Pong game, and a DIY Etch-a-Sketch program, you and your budding software engineer can unlock the world of computer programming. So, now what? Here are 10 new inventions you can make with your Arduino Coding Kit.

Let’s get programming!

1. Keyboard Prank

Use Arduino to prank your friends! Every 15 seconds, this program presses a backspace and a smiley face pops up. 😀

2. Light Up Backpack

Help your budding engineer get some serious school style with this light up backpack – or, make one for yourself!

3. Glitterfly

Engineer a totally amazing fiber optic butterfly. It’s an awesome solo or family activity.

4. Robot Arm

Bluetooth + Arduino = a superhero device!

5. Jackpot Game

Program your own game AND win money. How cool is that?

6. Bat Vision

This device can detect the obstacles in your way using echolocation, just like bats!

7. Pet Monitor

Have you ever wondered what your dog is doing while you are out of the house? Is she really the angel that you think she is? You can find out with this littleBits pet monitor.

8. Love-O-Meter

Step right up & test your LOVE! Invent your own carnival-style Love-O-Meter to see if you have what it takes to be a big hunk of love.

9. Interactive Disco Dance Floor

Add Arduino to a Synth Bit and produce a rainbow finger puppet show! Watch out, Broadway.

10. 8-bit Jukebox

The 8-bit Jukebox is a chiptune music box powered by our Arduino Bit. The Bit is programmed with 4 different songs that playback with a retro, video-game-styled 8-bit sound. Now, throw a party that’ll make Gatsby jealous.
