Are you a builder? Maybe builder is a bit of an overstatement but if you like to tinker around and dream of owning a workshop where you can lose track of the hours while you piece together some new pet project then you are certainly not alone.
Many of us have fond memories of building things with Legos, K’nex, Erector sets or even putting together models. Why should the fun end just because we’ve grown up? If you have a hankering to craft something a bit more sophisticated, then this step-by-step Arduino guide is perfect for you!
