Program your world with Arduino

Image for Program your world with Arduino

Arduino is a programming platform that allows anyone from a professional programmer to a DIY hobbyist to play around with electronics and make your world more interactive.

According to the website, Arduino is a “an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects.” According to me, this is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. And I spend hours a week hunting for cool stuff on the Internet.
