With the best Arduino kits, along with the best Raspberry Pi kits, you can build complex electronic systems from scratch with a few simple tools and some guidance from the manufacturing team. Similar to what Raspberry Pi is used for, people use Arduino Kits in cosplay outfits, science experiments at schools, and even for prototyping larger projects. The possibilities are endless if you have the right equipment, and fortunately, we have some of the best right here.

Why you can trust Android Central Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

If you are new to Arduino and you want a comprehensive starter kit, then the ELEGOO Mega kit (opens in new tab) is likely the right choice for you. It has a massive collection of components and a CD full of tutorials to get you going, with each experiment getting more difficult as you progress. It will give you the firm foundation you need to progress further into programming.

I can't help but be overjoyed with the Hexapod robot from Freenove (opens in new tab) with its insectoid appearance and simple to use controls. I, for one, welcome the army of hexapods that will soon descend on us, crushing all who oppose them.

Finally, if you want to support the team who initially designed the wonder of engineering that is the Arduino, you can pick up the official Arduino starter kit (opens in new tab). Arduino is dedicated to helping people learn, and deserve all the applause and money it can get to continue that work.
