About Us

Welcome to

This site is devoted to anything and everything Arduino. For those of you not familiar with Arduino it is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on a flexible, easy to use hardware and software. It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

What is Arduino?

The great thing about the Arduino platform is that it can sense the environment around it by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can be programmed to affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, LEDs and other devices. There is a microcontroller on the board that can be programmed using the Arduino programming language.. Typically, you use an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) based on Processing which is free to download.

Getting an Arduino

While you can build and make your own Arduino-based boards, they are generally purchased preassembled. The hardware designs are available under an open-source license and you are free to modify them to suit your needs.

More Info

We recommend that you visit the getting started portion of the official Arduino website first.


If you are interested in the development of Arduino and want to be notified of the lastest changes to the software check out the developers mailing list.
