SAM makes it easy to build connected electronics

56 sec read

Makers, students and those beginners that would like to learn how to code and learn how to build a connected electronics world with ease, are sure to be interested in this new wireless connected electronics kit called SAM. The SAM connected electronics kit project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise £50,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Watch the video below to learn more about SAM.

Meet SAM, a wireless electronics kit that’s aiming to make it easier for kids or indeed anyone with an idea for a connected project to get building — using a series of Bluetooth connected pieces and a drag and drop software interface for linking the hardware together. And also easier to integrate connected objects with other digital apps and services, like social networks or email — so you could, for instance, build a real-world connected object using SAM that notifies you when you get an email from a particular contact. Or link your small business’ Facebook like button to an LED interface that flashes every time you get a new like. Kids today are getting pretty spoiled for choice when it comes to cutting their teeth learning to code and/or hacking around with bits of hardware designed for the purpose of play. Only this weekend Kano shipped its first batch of coding kits, which combine the Raspberry Pi microcomputer with a software layer atop Linux specially designed for learning coding. There’s also electronics hobby kits like LittleBits. And various modular robotics projects, likeMOSS and Cubelets.
