MindKits

We like to build stuff, we sell stuff too and are pretty happy to help you find what you need for your next project. We're good like that :)

Long Description MindKits are known for being the Arduino and electronics specialists in New Zealand. Their fantastically friendly service and great knowledge also made them pretty much a one stop shop for advice and great electronics supplies for professionals and hobbyists. They also love to help so if you have questions, ideas or just need a hand - sing out. They're here to help.

MindKits was established in December 2008 by Tim Carr after seeing a lack of sites supporting New Zealanders in learning robotics and physical computing. After working away Sundays tinkering Tim decided it was time there was a site that not only sold robotics kit, sensors and Arduinos but was a place for a community around robotics to grow and have somewhere to share ideas and learning.

MindKits was born out of the need to build a framework to make it easy for anyone interested to enter into the world of robotics and feel supported along the way.

The MindKits team are passionate to see you learn and grow and are always happy to lend a hand. Contact us if there's a project you need some advice on or you need to source parts that we may not stock already. We can generally get nearly anything in and are happy to do so.

The Foundation

A Makerspace, sometimes called Hackerspace, is both a physical place and a community. What binds the community together is the joy of making things. There is no limit on what “things” can mean in this context, many makerspaces have a bias towards electronics or physical computing projects but it can, and should, include working with wood, fabric, food, glass, metal, beer or projects that include all of those… anything that can be made, discussed, refined and tinkered with.
