Description Introduction of basic hardware hacking including electronics on arduino and programming on Mind+. You can have hand-on hacking experience of creating a heartbeat LED animation, tuning machine, morning alarm(light-inductive) and avatar plant (touch-inductive). Most importantly, with Mind+, a flow-based visual programming software for Arduino, you can have a taste of Arduino programming by drag and drop just like LEGO and start to create your own project.

Find learning Arduino IDE baffling but always want to hack electronics? Mind+ is a flow-based visual programming software that enables anyone to make fast prototypes intuitively and enjoy hardware hacking even without programming background. Just drag and drop modules, set up parameters and connect modules after building the circuit. Then your DIY project is good to go!

Here are the project that you can learn in 2 hours!
