If you like the idea, you can pledge to get one of several ESLOV kits that’s more likely to meet your technological ambitions. Contributing about $55 will get you the core WiFi Hub, which includes a motion sensor. Spending $99 or higher will get you multiple modules, with higher tiers carrying more exotic parts like hall sensors and OLED screens. Arduino hopes to ship its crowdfunded kits in June 2017 if it meets its funding goal. No, this isn’t the cheapest way to get started on DIY devices (an Arduino Uno board costs about $22), but it might be ideal if you’re teaching kids to build electronics or want to gradually ease into a gadget making hobby.
