The Arduino is an inexpensive, flexible microcontroller platform that makes it easy for hobbyists to use electronics in DIY projects. With its wide range of input and output add-ons, sensors, indicators, displays, and motors, the Arduino offers you countless ways to create interactive devices.
Through 65 hands-on projects, Arduino Workshop will teach you the tricks and design principles of a master craftsman. This edition has been updated for the latest version of the Arduino IDE and revised to reflect current hardware and technology. It includes coverage of general electronics concepts as well as schematic diagrams and detailed images of components. You ll experiment with touchscreens and LED displays, explore robotics, use sensors with wireless data links, and control devices remotely with a cell phone.
Build projects like:
An electronic version of the classic six-sided die
A GPS logger that records and displays travel data
A keypad-controlled lock that opens with a secret code
A binary quiz game
A motorized remote control car with collision detection
Whatever your skill level, you re sure to have fun as you learn to harness the power of the Arduino for your own DIY projects.

"When it comes to technology, there's really something to be said for learning by example, and with each key point focused around a specific project, the information in this book is easy to learn and retain."
Dave Rankin, About.com Open Source
"Arduino Workshop was the first book I ve read that helped me really make sense of the practical applications the Arduino is capable of."
"A very thorough primer for those wishing to jump on the [Arduino] bandwagon."
Kevin Wierzbicki, Campus Circle
"I ve checked out several Arduino primers, and found the best one for my purposes to be Arduino Workshop: A Hands-On Introduction with 65 Projects by John Boxall."
Jeff Rowe, MCADCafe.com Blog
"A good book for getting started . . . I highly recommend it if you re thinking about getting into Arduino projects and you re brand new to this stuff."
