Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. A large community of passionate users has formed in the recent years around it, and with new initiatives, like the availability of the kits from Radio Shack, and the Arduino Education website, Arduino is becoming important to teach electronics to a new generation of makers.
David Gomba of Arduino says: “As we have announced on the Arduino blog, Radio Shack is starting to sell Arduino in most of its 6000+ stores all around the US. We want our videos to be understood all over the world, and crowdsourcing translations and subtitles to our community is a way to make Arduino even more usable and friendly. Be part of this revolution on our blog videos and on the scuola site for our teachers. Arduino is You!”
