In future projects you will definitely see us using something called the ‘Arduino’ so I’ve decided to make a post on it, for all of you who don’t know what it is.
The ‘Arduino’ is a micro-controller, or an “I/O board” which you can connect outputs, such as lights, motors, buzzers, etc. and Inputs, such as buttons, light dependent resistors, potentiometers, etc.
It’s programming language is simply called ‘Arduino’ and is a derivative of C*.
Along with numerous other things the Arduino is: powerful, open source, has a large, helpful community, and most of all… blue! ; )
The Arduino isn’t the only thing we will use in our projects, but it is a useful tool that you will see in many of our posts.
