Description More Details
 

DIY MintDuino - Building an Arduino-Compatible Breadboard Microcontroller. This hands-on book shows you how to build a complete MintDuino project from start to finish. Learn how to assemble the microcontroller on a breadboard (no soldering required), and immediately begin programming it.

You'll build the MintDuino Reflex Game in five separate stages or sub-tasks. Breaking down a large project into manageable tasks helps you track down errors quickly, and lets you see how each part of the circuit works. Once you complete the game, you'll have the resources and experience to tackle more MintDuino projects. If you’re interested in the fascinating world of microcontrollers, you'll enjoy this book.
Features
  • Wire up and program the MintDuino to light an LED
  • Build a game that tests the reflexes of two players
  • Learn how to make your “game light” glow at random intervals
  • Construct a pushbutton circuit to control individual players’ LEDs
  • Put all of the components together, including simple code to control your game

They sell you a kit and send you to the web site for instructions. Then they try to charge for the instructions.

Lame!
Greedy, and so Very Lame!

Not as described December 3, 2011
Reviewer: Edward Motts from Altadena, CA United States  
The MakerShed site describes this book as follows: "Learn how to assemble the microcontroller on a breadboard (no soldering required), and immediately begin programming it."

From the title and that description, I expected that that the book would instruct me how to assemble the microcontroller on a breadboard.  Actually, the book assumes that you already have an assembled Mintduino microcontroller, and know how to program it.  The book describes using your assembled Mintduino to build a little game.

It's only $5 so I won't bother returning it, but I don't feel like I got what I wanted.  I wanted instructions on "Building an Arduino-Compatible Breadboard Microcontroller," like the title of the book says.
