You can pre-order the kit already, and we anticipate having the kits built up and shipping out by February!

In the meantime, we’ve released the online experiment guide so you can get an idea of what to expect, and get a head start on some of the concepts.

SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Edison Experiment Guide

December 17, 2015

Learn how to harness the power of the Intel® Edison using JavaScript to post data to the cloud, control electronics from smartphones, and host web pages that interact with circuits.

And if you need even more Edison while you wait, you can explore our Getting Started with Edison video series, which covers concepts like blinking an LED, WiFi and working with SparkFun’s ecosystem of Blocks for the Edison.

You can also watch our exclusive two-part Google Hangout series with Intel, hosted by Rex St. John and resident SparkFun Edison expert Shawn Hymel. The first episode, which covered what the Edison is, some project ideas, and an overview of the Blocks can be found here, and the second episode, which focuses on transforming prototypes into products, can be found here.

Hopefully these resources will keep you busy and scratch your Edison itch for a few weeks while we’re feverishly assembling the brand new SIK!
