You can pick up your own Sterling Engine to play around with here:

Remember, the gear for the nine-axis IMU project is a BNO055 and an arduino nano, available at these links:

Adafruit BNO055 IMU Sensor:

I strongly suggest picking up an arduino nano, since it can plug directly into the breadboard, making a portable system more practical. You can pick one up here:

OK, now this is the gear I am using for my Jetson Nano project shown in today's video. If there is interest, as shown by people ordering this gear, I will make an AI class based on this setup.

Jetson Nano

You need a GOOD power supply:

You need a GOOD SD card:

I love this cool Acrylic case with fan:

Wireless Keyboard and Mouse that works with Jetson Nano:

I like to run with minimum wires, so I am running this wifi card, which works very well. If your budget is tight just use an Ethernet cable, as all my lessons will work with just an ethernet cable.

Finally, you can use either a Logitech C920 WEB cam or the Pi Cam. I am using both, but you need at least one camera working with the nano:

You guys can help me out over at Patreon, and that will help me keep my gear updated, and help me keep this quality content coming:
