MAKE | Hummingbird: “Pre-Arduino” for Kids

They call it “pre-Arduino.”

The custom controller is sold as a kit that can be used to operate sensors, motors, and lights (included in the box). BirdBrain designer Tom Lauwers says it’s designed for “students and kids who have never touched electronics or programming before.” The Hummingbird costs $199, a bit steep for a kids’ kit, but there are reportedly plans for a lower priced version.
