Arduino Project Book
Arduino makes it as easy as possible to program tiny computers called microcontrollers, which are what make objects interactive.<br>You are surrounded by dozens of them every day: they are embedded in timers, thermostats, toys, remote controls, microwave ovens, even some toothbrushes. They just do one specific task, and if you hardly notice them - which is often the case - its because they are doing it well. They have been programmed to sense and control activity using sensors and actuators.<br>Arduino was designed to help you get things done. To make that happen, we kept the background material on programming and electronics to a minimum. If you decide you want to know more about these aspects, there are lots of good guides available.
