Product Summary

Something different.

The Arduino Esplora is a microcontroller board derived from the Arduino Leonardo. The Esplora differs from all preceding boards in that it provides a number of built-in, ready-to-use set of onboard sensors for interaction. It has onboard sound and light output interfaces. It also has the potential to expand its capabilities with two Tinkerkit input and output connectors, and a socket for a color TFT LCD screen.

  • Board contains everything needed to support the microcontroller
  • Connect it to a computer with a USB cable to get started
  • Analog joystick with central push button
  • 4 push-buttons laid out in a diamond pattern
  • Linear potentiometer slider near the bottom of the board
  • Microphone for getting the loudness (amplitude) of the surrounding environment
  • Light sensor for getting the brightness
  • Temperature sensor reads the ambient temperature
  • 3-axis accelerometer measures the board's relation to gravity on 3 axes (X, Y, and Z)
  • 2 TinkerKit Inputs to connect the TinkerKit sensor modules with the 3-pin connectors
  • 2 TinkerKit Outputs to connect the TinkerKit actuator modules with the 3-pin connectors
  • TFT display connector for an optional color LCD screen, SD card or other devices

The coolest thing at Radio Shack

      Comments about Arduino Esplora Microcontroller Board:

      This is the coolest thing at Radio Shack and a great thing for any computer or electronic hobbyist. Like any Arduino it is easy to use and very well documented (online, not in the box).

      It can run off a USB port, emulate a keyboard or a mouse. It contains an accelerometer a light sensor, an analog joystick, a microphone and speaker, an RGB LED, and there is a place to plug in an LCD touch screen. There are so many projects you can do with this board with zero alteration.

      For example, you can plug this into a PC and it can type temperature readings into a spreadsheet. You can use it as a custom game controller. If you stuck two continuous rotation servos on the output jack, and added a battery, you could make a pretty capable robot.

      You do need a PC or Mac to program it. Check out the Arduino site if you are thinking about this.
