A Makers Dream!

Built to power your ideas

You know the feeling, you're struck with a billion, nay trillion dollar idea.


You just need to write a bit of code and test it quick.


    The Old Way Is Frustrating

    Now it's time to break out the breadboard which probrably already has an old project in it.


    Then just rummage through this mess to find the parts, wires and tools you need to wire it all up.




    What if you didn't have to do any of this?


    What if you could just jump straight into your project instead of wasting all that precious time, effort and FRUSTRATION?


    Streamline Your Development Cycle

    Arduino Uno & Nano Compatible Prototyping Rig

    *Shown here with Expansion pack, sold separately.

    **Assembly required.

    *** Arduino Nano compatible board included. Uno compatible is not.

    The Dr.Duino Explorer combines the ease of building projects using an Arduino Uno/Nano without the hassles of a breadboard to slow you down.


    Allowing you to develop projects faster than ever before.


    That means you spend less time hunting down wiring issues and more time coding.


    With everything from push buttons to a built in OLED, you'll never want to build another project without it!

    Powerful Features, Portable Design

    We thought of everything so you don't have to

    • OLED

      Sometimes you just can't be connected to your PC in order to debug your project.


      That's why we included a bright, 128 x 64 line character and graphics OLED.

    • Power Options

      What if your design calls for more power than you can drive from your Arduino uno or nano?


      Or, you need to drive a motor at a different voltage.


      With up to a 24V input source and adjustable down to 1.2V, your project will have the power it needs!


    • Bluetooth LE

      You know the feeling, you just want to control something from across the room wirelessly.


      We've got you covered there too with our Bluetooth Low Energy module.


      Compatible with Android and Iphone, there's nothing you won't be able to do!


    • Mini Breadboard

      In the event you don't have a circuit which you need built into the Dr.Duino itself, you will still need a breadboard.


      With 170 pins, you'll have more than enough to get you going, without having to worry about lugging out a giant one to stitch everything together.


    • Prototyping Area

      Sometimes you just need a little space to add a custom circuit to your design.


      That's why we added a large 256 pin prototyping area.


      This isn't just a bunch of holes though!


      The perimeter contains access to every I/O pin on the Arduino Uno or Nano, access to power and ground pins and so much more.

    • 8 Channel Addressable LEDs

      So much of what we want to do with our Arduinos is to control LED's.


      We've got you covered with our built in 16 million color capable LED strip.

    • Re-Route It Technology

      Easily isolate hardware from firmware issues with the move of a jumper.


      Also makes probing pins with tools like oscilloscopes and DMM's a breeze!

    Electronic Essentials

    At your fingertips, not stuck in the bottom of a drawer

    • Discrete LED's x 4

      Transform these 5mm discrete LED's into a virtual breakpoints by turning them on and off at different spots in your code. Perfect for quickly isolating issues.

    • Push Buttons x 4

      Momentary push buttons are the simplest of electronic components, but you don't always have them when you need them. Now you do!

    • Potentiometer x 3

      Digitizing the analog world is the mainstay of electronics, these 10K single turn pots are perfect for creating your own RGB controller, PID tuning circuit or anything else that needs an analog input.

    • Piezo

      Our world is just as much audible as it is visible, which is why we included this passive piezo buzzer. Easily add audible tones to your project just when you need it most.

    • Light Sensor

      So many projects require your project to know if light is or is not present or maybe somewhere in between. With this built in LDR, you'll know just the right brightness to trigger your code.

    • Ultrasonic Sensor

      This sensor is seriously cool and will give you super human powers.


      Allows you to sense objects from 1 inch to 13 feet away!

    4 Kits In 1

    With so many kits available from other big box vendors, why Dr.Duino?

    Here are four reasons why!

    Experimenting Platform

    Contains all of the same components other kits have, but, it's pre-wired for time savings!

    Test Fixture

    Only kit available which allows easy access to all pins and they are all probe friendly.


    Quickly troubleshoot hardware vs. code problems.


    Never be limited by hardware again! You'll always have what you need in one kit.

    Oh, and a dedicated VIP group... Ok, that was 5 reasons.

    Advanced Capabilities

    • Diagnose With Real tools

      While developing within the Arduino ecosystem is awesome, trying to use standard equipment on it is not. That's why we made it easy for you to attach your scope probe, DMM or any other piece of test equipment.

    • Break Out Board

      Every pin of the Arduino Uno & nano compatible boards is broken out to individual test points. This makes it easy for you to diagnose issues quickly in  your code.

    • Convenient Prototyping Area

      Most other kits give you an akward little space to add your custom circuits. Not with the explorer. You have a large working area with easy access to power, ground, I/O. This makes building your own circuits onto the explorer a breeze.

    • Easy Access to Ground Points

      Accessing ground points while you work, shouldn't be complicated! That's why we added convenient access to test points all around the board.

    • 170 Pin Breadboard

      There will come a time when you need to add a custom circuit but you don't necessarily want to solder it into the prototyping area. That's why we added a high quality, breadboard right in the middle of the explorer.

    Re-Route It TechnologyTM

    Easily Isolate Hardware From Firmware Issues

    With the swap of a jumper, you'll be able to easily and QUICKLY diagnose firmware from hardware issues.


    While at the same time, being able to probe every single pin of any Arduino Uno or Nano compatible board with convenient test points.


    You will use it so much, you won't know how you lived without it!


    Plus, it's exclusive to Dr.Duino kits. You won't find this feature on any other kit out there!
