List of Hardware Components

Sketching with hardware requires some hardware components. For creating a functional prototype we typically need a microcontroller, sensors, actuators, and components to link the parts together.

To get started and to follow the course only a small set of parts is required. You can do many of the exercises and tutorials with only a microcontroller (e.g. ESP32, ESP8266), a few LEDs, and some resistors. We recommend getting started and once you like building things then get a hardware kit.

In the following list, we have marked the components that are in the LMU hardware box with 'LMUBox'.

Microcontroller and Main Boards


Sensors (and physical controllers)


Tools and Connectors

Wearables / Smart Watches
