Friday, 07 April 2017

This is a book designed for Arduino enthusiasts who've mastered the basics, conquered the soldering iron, and programmed a robot or two. Warren Andrews shows you how to keep your hardware hands busy with a variety of intermediate builds, both practical and just-for-fun. There are ten complex projects to advance your engineering and electronics know-how.
