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. Arduino board power all sorts of MakerGeek.com inventions from our Mendel90 3D Printer to our home-brew AeroQuad quad-copter to the FPV video system on our remote quadcopter drones!! MakerGeeks.com is very please to be an official distributor for Arduino in Missouri, USA!
Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).
More info about Arduino can be found on their home page @ http://www.arduino.cc also, the Arduino company makes TONS of different items and while we only stock a few of our personal favorites we have access to and great pricing on their entire catalog so if you need something Arduino based that you don't see here PLEASE email me and I can order it and have it for you in under 10 business days normally!!
