Make: LEGO and Arduino Projects Available for Preorder

Make: LEGO and Arduino Projects: Projects for extending MINDSTORMS NXT with open-source electronics is now available for preorder.  There couldn’t be a better team of authors working on this book.  John Baichtal brought us the fantastic Cult of LEGO book.  Matthew Beckler and Adam Wolf are the masterminds behind the Wayne & Layne open source hardware company (buy their kits right here at Adafruit).  Adam had first told me about this book while on the bus back to the hotel from the last Maker Faire Bay Area, and I was immediately intrigued.

Make amazing robots and gadgets by combining two of the hottest DIY technologies: the venerable LEGO and the upstart Arduino. With this book, you’ll learn how to take LEGO Mindstorms components—motors, sensors, and more—and interface them with the Arduino microcontroller, opening many exciting new options.

You’ll focus on six projects, each more challenging and informative than the next. In each project, you’ll explore different ways that Arduino adds functionality to LEGO Mindstorms. In addition, the authors have created affordable companion kits designed specifically for the projects in this book. Perfect for students, teachers, hobbyists, makers, hackers, and kids.

  • Build projects such as the Cuckoo Clock, Chocolate Milk Maker, DrawBot, Robot Arm, and more
  • Learn the basics of Arduino and LEGO Mindstorms
  • Gain an excellent resource for teaching technology to kids of all ages

The book is set to ship on November 22.  Preorder your copy on Amazon.com.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
