about this item

You can understand and command the digital world The smartphone in your pocket is more powerful than the supercomputers of just a few years ago. How can we and our children possibly learn the digital magic that underlies our modern electronic world? The key is finding a way to learn microcomputers the natural way, by playing. Exponential advances in technology have driven the cost of full-fledged but tiny computers to less than three dollars. Imagine adding a real computer to an art project or a teddy bear for less than the cost of a cup of coffee. You can program these little computers from your laptop or desktop computer using the same simple computer language that the founders of Google and the inventor of the LINUX operating system first used to learn their craft. Even if you have never written a line of code or built an electronic circuit, the simple projects in Fearless Experiments with Microcomputers will guide you to success. You’ll control music, light, power and motion and gain the confidence that comes from acquiring a new superpower! Best of all, the low cost of the parts lets you experiment fearlessly and playfully. In just a few hours, you will discover that you can do things you had once thought impossible or out of your reach.
