Building the next amazing thing just got easier. The Arduino 101* board packs powerful features that make creating a cinch, even for beginner Makers. And while it sells at an entry-level price point (starting at $29.99), it’s built for creating complex projects that require plenty of firepower.
The brain behind the board is the Intel® Curie™ module, a powerful button-sized computer that has a built-in 6-axis combo sensor, Bluetooth* Low Energy radio, and low power usage, making it the perfect board for building “always-on” projects like fitness monitors.
The Arduino 101 board may be the most amazing board yet, for the most amazing creations yet.
The Intel® Curie™ module and Arduino 101* board star in the most inspiring reality TV competition, America's Greatest Makers. Discover what the country's most innovative Makers dream up using the latest Intel® technology.
Getting started with Arduino 101* has never been easier. Check out step-by-step instructions to guide you through your first projects—a step counter, orientation visualizer, or a heart rate monitor.1
All you need is a board, a computer, and an idea to get started on your first Arduino 101* project. To begin, you can check out Arduino's Get Started Guide for help getting your board ready for your first build, including how to access the software that runs the embedded clock, sensors, and Bluetooth* Low Energy capabilities.
If you're still looking for inspiration, the Project Gallery offers ideas and instructions to help you get started building with your board.
When you're ready to build something more complex, you may need different sensors and accessories to help you craft something amazing. Looking through the accessory options may even help inspire your next creation!
