This second volume of the ­Arduino Project Handbook delivers 25 more ­beginner-friendly electronics projects. Get up and running with a crash course on the Arduino, and then pick any project that sparks your interest and start making!

Each project includes cost and time estimates, simple instructions, colourful photos and circuit diagrams, a troubleshooting section and the complete code to bring your build to life. With just the Arduino board (sold separately) and a handful of components, you’ll make gadgets like a rainbow light display, noise-level meter, digital piano, GPS speedo­meter and fingerprint scanner!

This collection of projects is a fast and fun way to get started with microcontrollers that’s perfect for beginners, hobbyists, parents, and educators.


Author Bio

Mark Geddes is a lifelong tinkerer and gadget enthusiast from Dumfries, Scotland. Frustrated with the lack of practical, visual guides to help him teach his ten-year-old how to build with Arduino, he set about recording his own experiments, and Arduino Project Handbook is the result. Geddes has a bachelor's degree from Edinburgh College of Art.
