The Arduino Board

It has been a while on posting here. Primarily there have been many other projects that taken time away from the Spaceroom work. However I have always been looking for interesting things both in hardware and software that could contribute to the system.

The latest (and perhaps the greatest) find is the [ Arduino board]. It is an Open-Source hardware and sofware platform. One can construct the board from scratch or buy implementations from a variety of source for less than $40. There is even an [ virtual Arduino development environment] that allows designing and testing projects before you even have an Arduino.

What can you do with an Arduino? Seems to be almost anything. There are many sites with projects that are just a Google search away.

We are going to look at a couple of projects and post the progress here.
