Building your own electronics using Arduino or Raspberry Pi does not have to be challenging. It might look daunting to beginners, but a modular kit like Modulo makes your life easier. You can use Temp Probe, Motor Driver, Joystick, Display, and other modules to build your own electronics.
The Base holds four Modulos and connects them together. You can daisy chain Bases to build more complex projects. There is also a Spark Base that lets you use a socket for a Spark device. Like what you see? You can find out more on Kickstarter.
