Advanced Kit for Raspberry Pi 2 (Windows 10 IoT Compatible)

The IoT world is coming, and it’s going to be even bigger than the internet.

If you have a computer, a mouse and a keyboard, you have everything you need to use the internet – BUT, in the IoT world, you are able to add sensors to the mix, bringing you even greater possibilities.

This kit includes all the basic IoT sensors modules you will need to start playing with Microsoft Windows 10 IoT and the “Azure” cloud service. In addition, we haved included some extra toys: a USB touch screen, a 9g servo, a PIR sensor, a UV sensor and a USB Camera.

Here are a few simple ideas for the projects you can create with this kit:
With the USB touch screen, you have a low-cost simple user interface for your project

  • A Servo is the most commonly used actuator in robotics. Combine some servos with a USB camera and you can build a pan and tilt automated home monitoring system that will keep your home and family safe
  • A UV sensor is an excellent tool for a wearable device. Why not make a shirt that can change color based on the light surrounding it?
