The Johnny-Five Inventor's Kit (J5IK) is your go-to source for
developing projects using the Tessel 2 and the Johnny-Five programming

With the J5IK you will be able to build JavaScript-powered hardware by
marrying common software language with powerful hardware. This kit
includes everything you need to complete 14 circuits that will teach
you how to control and read external sensors and displays, control
motors, learn JavaScript, and much more. With the J5IK, you won't need
any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit
though if you do possess such skills they will certainly aid you.
After using this kit you'll have the know-how to start creating your
own IoT projects and experiments, all thanks to Johnny-Five!

Johnny-Five is an Open Source Robotics and IoT platform based on the
IO-Plugin protocol. Released by Bocoup in 2012, Johnny-Five is
maintained by a community of passionate software developers and
hardware engineers. Over 75 developers have made contributions towards
building a robust, extensible and composable ecosystem.

The on-line Experiment Guide for the J5IK (that will be released when
the kit starts shipping) contains step by step instructions of how to
connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is
provided and explained and even includes troubleshooting tips if
something goes wrong.

The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for anyone
comfortable learning new programming languages or if you are looking
for an alternative to the original SparkFun Inventor's Kit.
