TinkerKit simplifies electronic prototyping throughout a wide variety of sensors and actuators mounted on orange-coloured boards that you can hook up to the Arduino through the Sensor Shield. Each module uses the same 3-pin cables that can't be plugged the wrong way around. A small signal amplifier helps to stabilize the signals running on the cables, ensuring reliable transmission from the sensors even on long distances (1m-5m).
The TinkerKit has been conceived for education and design, allowing the quick setup of interactive environments, without using a soldering iron or a breadboard.
The TinkerKit is the result of years of experience in Interaction Design. For a long time it has been used as an internal tool used on client projects, it's now finally available on the market.
This TinkerKit shield fits perfectly upon an Arduino Uno/Duemilanove :
