What is Arduino?
"...it’s like a little computer you can program to do things, and it interacts with the world through electronic sensors, lights, and motors. In essence, it makes some truly hardcore electronics projects accessible to anyone – so artists and creative types can concentrate on making their ideas a reality. It’s the ultimate tinkering tool." -James Bruce
The Maker-Bot (yes, THE 3-D printer) was made with Arduinos.
You can create robots, laser harps, even interactive LED cubes with this amazing device. Curious? Come to Chicon Collective on Oct. 13th to learn the basics of Arduino from Noah Glaser.
