Main description

Program and build fun devices with the Arduino microcontroller development system

30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius shows you how to use Arduino—the open-source physical computing platform. You’ll master Arduino through a series of projects while learning the required simplified C programming--no prior programming experience necessary. Projects include: a servo-controlled laser, a USB-controlled fan, a light harp, a USB temperature logger, a sound “oscilloscope,” and many more.

Arduino’s built-in USB makes it perfect for interfacing a home computer to external electronics, and it can be used with Windows, Mac, and Linux. The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open-source IDE can be downloaded for free.
