Arduino… Hardware for the masses.

For those of you that do not know the arduino is a microcontroller platform based on Atmel microcontrollers. It began as an economic tool for schools and universities but has gone beyond that, since arduinos have been selling like hotcakes. Its main  advantage is that it is open source. Its main disadvantage is…  none really since you get what you pay.

The truth is for most of you there is nothing new with arduino. Everybody has heard about it and it can be found everywhere. But who are the people behind it and how it came to be? If you want to know take a look at the video and if you want more info check the link at the end.
