    Have you ever wanted to build your own electronic devices, with sensors, sounds, and moving parts? Have you ever seen an electronic device somewhere and thought, I could build something better than that?

    Imagine programming a smart-home device that responds to a message from your phone to control your utilities, monitor your security system, and water your plants while you’re away… Or perhaps a home laser show that turns nearby movements into music and colored lights… Maybe even an internet-controlled robot that solves puzzles!

    Now you can do all these things – and so much more! Let your imagination run wild as you explore your new electronics hobby with Newegg! We’ll supply what you need from our new stock of microcontrollers – the first piece in building your customized device.

Your imagination is your only limit.
