Arduino 101 Explained with SparkFun!

The Arduino 101 (Genuino 101 outside the US) is the newest addition to the Arduino line-up. A collaboration between Intel and Arduino, it features the Intel Curie module, which contains a dual core, 32-bit Quark processor running at 32 MHz. The board is in the traditional Arduino form factor, which means it can accept most Arduino shields. Additionally, it contains an on-board Bluetooth Low Energy radio and a 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope.  

Behold the SparkFun RedStick!

Last week, we introduced the SparkFun RedStick, a special new edition of the BadgerHack board we designed to teach people the basics of programming and soldering at our 2015 events. After its debut, we got a TON of feedback from customers asking us to sell the Badgers on our site for those who couldn’t make it to our booths, and after some finessing and revising, behold: The RedStick.   We’ve also been hard at work on some special add-on kits for the RedStick to help you add functionality and build simple projects with your board. Best of all, if you…
