Johnny-Five is an Open Source Robotics and IoT platform based on the IO-Plugin protocol. Released by Bocoup in 2012, Johnny-Five is maintained by a community of passionate software developers and hardware engineers. Over 75 developers have made contributions towards building a robust, extensible and composable ecosystem.
The on-line Experiment Guide for the J5IK (that will be released when the kit starts shipping) contains step by step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained and even includes troubleshooting tips if something goes wrong.
The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone comfortable learning new programming languages or if you are looking for an alternative to the original SparkFun Inventor’s Kit.
Note: This product is available for pre-order. We expect to have these in stock and shipping by June 29. Adding a pre-order product to an order may cause a delay. Be sure to uncheck ‘ship complete order’ in your cart to avoid delays in shipping in-stock items.
