Unboxing CurieBot

CurieBot is designed to introduce you to the joys of making with electronics. We decided to come up with a fun pack of parts that:

  • Could introduce a beginner to making
  • Teach soldering, electronics and programming skills
  • Does not assume any prior experience
  • Comes with enough fun parts that could be combined and adapted for months or years!

Kit Contents

After a lot of thinking, here's what we came up with:

Arduino 101, USB Cable, & Batteries

  • 1x Arduino 101 with Intel Curie the brains of your bot! It's a board that combines the universal appeal of Arduino with the latest technologies - like the Intel Curie module, Bluetooth LE capabilities, and a 6-axis accelerometer/gyro.
  • 1x USB Cable - Standard A-B - 3 ft/1m - use this to install new code onto your Arduino 101 (from any computer)
  • 1x 9V battery  - this battery will power your Arduino 101 (but not the motors)
  • 4x AA Batteries - Use these to power your the motors of your super awesome little robot
