A laptop and Arduino is all you need to interface with the real world.
Arduino comes with libraries to interface with hundreds of different electronic devices and gadgets. You can use it to connect physical things to everything from simple sensors to internet feeds, leave it running standalone or hook up to computers, other arduinos, custom radios, and much more.
What you need to bring
- a laptop, a little imagination, and the Arduino development kit installed on your laptop, which you can find here: http://arduino.cc
What you'll get
- Necessary Electronics components to get you started.
Here's an example Arduino-powered project happening at Crashspace now!
