This is the big one, the bee's knees, the bling king (or queen), the ultimate Flotilla kit.
You'll get fourteen Flotilla modules, three complete kits - our audibly offensive Noisemaker synth, a cute little paper-craft mood light, and an all-singing, all-dancing line-following robot - as well as eight other super-simple Cookbook recipes to get you up and running in two turns of a ship's wheel.

Flotilla helps you make reactive and interactive projects - a robot, virtual pet, weather station - anything you can think of!
Flotilla is designed to progress with you as your skills develop. You don't need any coding skills or electronics knowledge to get started, you can simply plug and play.
For beginners Flotilla has Cookbook and Rockpool, two web-based apps which you can access from your computer or tablet. They let you experiment, learn, and build without writing a single line of code.
For anyone who's done a little programming before, we also have a complete Python API that lets you talk to all of the Flotilla modules.
