My first play with the Arduino

[Video] I’m learning electronics and programming, one stupid mistake at a time


This is just a quick little look at my first play with the Arduino starter kit – I’ll follow up soon with more on open hardware, my development with the open source microcontroller and how this kind of tool can fit into my Year of Open Source.

If you want to try the projects yourself or find out more, check out the 10 new video tutorials with Arduino founder Massimo Banzi.

I doubt I’ll have use for a fire-breathing animatronic pony,  but there’s the possibility of using it for motion control to make time-lapse or stop-motion videos, it could become a internet-connected automatic printer, help me monitor my electricity usage, or control an automated greenhouse,
But right now, I have to go do my homework – in the meantime, check out my post on using open tools to learn programming and electronics.
