    The Time-Poor HIDIOT Kit

    This is the perfect package for people who want to get into hardware hacking but just can't get the time due to other commitments.
    As well as two full HIDIOT kits (and spare parts in case things go wrong), you'll get a full one hour online workshop with slots bookable throughout June and July*.

    We'll go through soldering the HIDIOT together, installing the programming software, flashing your first program and we'll try a couple of projects if time allows.

    Workshops are limited to 10 in a class, online-based, run for 1-2 hours in English on specific weekday and weekend evenings and mornings (on UK time) throughout June and July 2017. If you are unable to make your allocated slot we will do our best to accommodate your preferences, but cannot guarantee a particular time or date. If you miss your allocated slot, your session is void, so contact us if you need to reschedule.
    Includes free worldwide shipping.

    *Subject to availability. If you can't make your allocated slot you'll need to reschedule in advance. If you miss your slot without rescheduling, it's voided.

    Includes:
    • HIDIOT Kickstarter Edition Kit
    • Assembly Workshop
    • Hardware Hacker Sticker
    • Spare part bundle
