Adafruit Gift guides this week! Arduino shields, Arduino books, processing books and Xbee wireless

Here are this week’s gift guides, we’ll do a round up each friday and you can also check them out in our new gift guide category.

Shieldguide-1
Arduino shields – AN ADAFRUIT ELECTRONICS GIFT GUIDE! Shields allow you to turn an Arduino into things like music players, robots, wireless and more. Here is just a small sampling of 10 great shields to be given as gifts for friends, family or yourself! In our list we also indicated which ones are open source hardware.


Pt 10486-1
Books to learn Arduino! – AN ADAFRUIT ELECTRONICS GIFT GUIDE! We consider these books some the best resources for learning Arduino!


Pt 10498-1
Books to learn processing – AN ADAFRUIT GIFT GUIDE. We consider these books some the best resources for learning processing! Why processing? We’ve found that it’s the best way for people who want to learn programming to get started, they’re instantly able to run free open source software on Win, Mac and Linux and they code they learn can easily be applied to learning Arduino later!


Pt 10503-1
The Xbee gift guide, go wireless! – AN ADAFRUIT ELECTRONICS GIFT GUIDE!. If you, a friend, or a loved one or family member wants to take an electronic project to the next level, the WIRELESS level – Xbee is a fantastic choice! What is Xbee? XBee modems are one of the easiest ways to create a wireless point-to-point or mesh network. They have error correction, are configured with AT commands, come in multiple flavors and can create a wireless serial link out of the box! We like to use them with Arduinos or with projects like wireless power meters.

  1. Wow a veritable buffet of eye candy, my major interests in one small space. I wish I had more money than my wife allows :)
    Thanks for providing one place to easily find these things. You are doing a great service to the current and next generation of tinkerers, innovators and engineers. In my opinion you should be getting an award for the work you do, keep it up!
