What is Arduino?

  • Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Why Arduino?

  • Inexpensive - The least expensive version of the Arduino module can be assembled by hand, and even the pre-assembled Arduino modules cost less than $50.
  • Simple, clear programming environment - The Arduino programming environment is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users to take advantage of as well. It requires little programing background to start with.
  • Open source and extensible software/hardware - There are many libraries available to adopt or explore, and you can easily get spare parts from hardware store or your own garage.
  • Cross-platform - The Arduino software runs on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.
