If you want to sprinkle some AI magic into your maker projects like me, you should try http://cnk.makercollider.com/ CurieNeurons Kit!
This kit includes Arduino101 (replaced by Curie Nano board in the latest version), along with many useful sensors and good tutorials for beginners. For example, beginners can use a drag-and-drop programming tool called http://curie.smartnode.io/en/category/smartnode-sample/sn-basic-sample/ curie-smartnode to program for some simple projects.
