Inventor’s Kit Exploits Tessel 2 And Johnny-Five Robotics
SparkFun Electronics

SparkFun Electronics and Bocoup team up to deliver the Johnny Five Inventors Kit (J5IK), said to be the first kit available for developing projects using the Tessel 2 and the Johnny-Five Robotics and IoT Platform. The kit enables users to build internet-connected, JavaScript-powered hardware projects by pairing the ubiquitous language with the Tessel 2 single-board computer and several components to get users started immediately. Although the applications are limitless, the kit allows users to control and read external sensors and displays, control motors, and use and learn JavaScript. One of the primary goals of the kit is to support software developers in going from code on the screen to making things happen in real life. Conversely, the kit supports hardware developers with tools that make it easier to build web-connected projects. And to serve all users, the online Experiment Guide contains step by step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and includes troubleshooting tips.
