Interactive course

The interactive course is included within the "Learning Kit" and "Educators Kit" reward tiers.

Designed for Education

The course takes you step by step through building 11 different circuits

1. Blinking LEDs and creating different colors on an RGB LED.

2. Toggle LED by Reading a Push Switch.

3. Analog Read ( LM35 Based Thermostat )

4. Analog Read ( LDR based day night switch )

5. Controlling AC Appliances ( FAN LIGHTS Etc ) using relays

6. Simple Traffic Light Control

7. Making voice using PWM

8. Game Using Color LCD

9. Remote control Devices using Infrared Remote control

10. Controlling devices via computer

11. Connecting devices via mobile phone ( Bluetooth )

Development Cycle
Timeline, Development and Fulfilment

Here is what we have already done:

Prototype Units
Part selection for production
Component Suppliers Selection
Production House Selection and job reservation
Example Projects
Here is what we are still working on:
Lots of new Example Projects for sharing
Test jigs for volume assembly
Go head to component suppliers
Go head to Production house for PCB manufacturing until component arrival
Production (1 month)
Shipping (250 per day)

Shipping

Price does not include the customs fees, duties and/or taxes you might incur when importing products into your state or country.

Risks and challenges

We have developed and tested prototype unit and few example projects we have to develop far more projects and production units. we have made arrangements with suppliers and production house. we hope with help of those and you kick starter backers we will able to make this product a sucess.
