The five pieces are:

Arduino, the open-source programmable chip that is a go-to for early stages of engineering projects Ototo, which uses electrical impulses to create music from common objects using technology similar to what makes a touch screen work Makey Makey, which uses simple components to transform virtually any object into a responsive computer control interface Colour Chaser, a toy vehicle capable of following any drawn black line, and which translates colors into sound The DIY Gamer Kit, a handheld console design tool in a box
