Alexandre (Lextronic’s CEO), our long-time partner and friend, fell in love with the Flip&Click since being introduced to it last year. He immediately recognised this being the solution to the plaguing Arduino shield limitation. He was one of the first to get their hands-on a prototype and started coding immediately.
Earlier this summer he decided to put this experience on paper by creating a step-by-step guide to using Flip&Click and click boards in the Arduino ecosystem. Our marketing team cooperated on the kit and packaging, the result is the new Flip&Click Starter Kit.
This Kit is a terrific way for those familiar with Arduino and ready to expand their projects capabilities.
Included in the Kit:
- Flip&Click board
- DHT22 click (temperature and humidity sensor)
- 7×10 R click (LED matrix)
- 2×16 LCD display
- Accessories and components (LEDS, resistors, trimmers, LEDs, wire jumpers, USB cable, etc.)
- Flip&Click Practice Book
All the components you’ll need to create 37 interesting projects.
Step-by-step instructions and elaborative tutorials are all included in the book.
Flip&Click is a multi-sided development platform with dual functionality. It can be used as a 32-bit ARM-powered Arduino Due, but it is also capable of running Python. In either case, it’s a beginner-friendly rapid prototyping tool expandable with up to four click boards™ (out of hundreds available).
In Arduino-terms, click boards™ are like mini shields. Their small size allow you to add up to four different sensors, transceivers, encoders, or any other types of chips or modules, while keeping the design compact (no stacking).
The kit is available in French only for now (more languages are following), so if you speak this beautiful language you are lucky to be among the first to get access to the kit, you can purchase it here.
