Our mission is to equip our audiences with the intelligence to understand and contribute to a world shaped by technology.
Our audience is anyone, anywhere, who believes that technology can solve hard problems, grow prosperity, and expand human possibilities.
"This way of presenting electronic components could be incredibly useful for high schools and electronics kits targeted at kids and young adults." - Max Maxfield, Editor of All Things Fun & Interesting (EETimes)
"If you sometimes struggle with fiddly electronic components you might be interested in a new system which has been created by iv-Robotics to make prototyping and learning electronics even easier and more rewarding." - Julian Horsey (Geeky-Gadgets)
"Now this is a cool idea. This Kickstarter provides common resistor and capacitor values in a breadboard friendly format. No more long dangly resistor and LED leads anymore.
I might back this one, looks good." - MickMake.com

Na Kickstarteru běží velice zajímavý projekt od skupiny iv-Robotics, která si dala za cíl značně zjednodušit a urychlit prototypování nových obvodů. Je určený všem DIY nadšencům a kutilům po celém světě. Projekt chce zajistit, abyste měli všechny potřebné rezistory a kondenzátory po ruce a zároveň jste se v nich neztratili. - arduino.cz (Zbyšek Voda)
To reduce the number of legs and make it easier for beginner, iv-Robotics has decided to create small boards with SMT resistors, capacitors and LEDs instead with markings to solve those small issues. - CNXSoft – Embedded Systems News
We invented, designed, produced and tested a limited batch of the product, which are unique and previously unseen in the history of tech. We spent two months on the testing these elements, and concluded the following: iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed components are ideally suited for all types of microcontrollers (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ST Nucleo, Teensy, Netduino, Discovery, BeagleBone-Black, Tower System, Xplained etc.) for use with a Breadboard.
p.s. Each diode already has its own resistor
When you create a project, a lot of time is spent on selecting the correct resistor or capacitor value.
Our modules have a convenient form and clear marking.With clever industrial design, short circuit is now a thing of the past.
The Story of this miracle began with Alex. Our friend Alex quickly learned to draw sketches and solder circuits, but adding the right components on the Breadboard was challenging.
One sunny day she asked us for help. We tried to find well designed, clearly marked components to ease her pain, but nothing was around. Then, we teamed up and decided to make our own. The result is iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed.
We are a group of young, inventive, energetic and nerdy (aren’t we all?) DIY developers who aim to make the world a better place for people like you and us.
We have no marketing people, no marketing budget, and we don't use any dirty tricks to get people's attention - we just rely on word of mouth - so please help us spread the word!
iv-Robotics’ smart electrical components help bridge students to the tech world.
The iResistors, iCapacitor and iLed assist makers, hobbyist and students in learning, and to develop and invent things.
Now we need your support, so we can make a big batch of new, user-friendly iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed. We want to finish production before New Year and start fulfilling requests in January 2017.
In February we will have resellers set up with stock, to make iResistor, iCapacitor and iLed available for everyone. Resellers need to take a cut, so if you act now, you will get the best offer directly from us. Just $10 each. Get them all with this once in a lifetime offer. We welcome any support.
The funds will be used for large scale manufacturing.
