Adruino looks pretty awesome

August 22, 2009

I just fount this really cool thing. Its called Adruino. This is a mini/micro PC looks like it will fit the bill for small scale automated control and monitoring. What’s really cool is that its Open source Hardware, which is a reletave new idea with the same basic philosophy of the traditional Open source community.

The Adruino platform not only has digital and analog I/O, but it has these add-on “shields” as they are called, that allow Ethernet, bluetooth, and many other options and forms of communications. I will definitely be messing around with one of these guys this winter, and posting some articles on my other blog site.
