Arduino Project Handbook: 25 Practical Projects to Get You Started
Among makers, building with Arduinos has become increasingly popular. These tiny computers can be programmed to connect to various electronic parts to perform a host of creative functions, but where does the novice begin? Mark Geddes has provided an excellent answer in this book. Geddes offers a series of twenty-five projects, organized by increasing difficulty, for the Arduino Uno. The book itself is well designed: large, color photographs clarify the projects, and illustrations make clear where each pin must connect, thereby increasing the beginner’s chance of success. Each project lists the necessary components at the beginning of the instructions, and those parts can be found relatively inexpensively on Amazon or Ebay and reused in other projects. He also provides the computer code necessary for each project, so no knowledge of programming is necessary. Furthermore, Geddes’ projects are fun and useful. Who could resist wanting to build a rocket launcher or sentry gun, while a keypad or wireless ID card entry system could prove quite handy. In sum, the Arduino Project Handbook is exactly the book the novice Arduino programmer has been seeking.
