ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I see a lot of familiar faces in this upcoming documentary about Arduino, the open source microcontroller system that is the basis for thousands of neat DIY projects.

The Arduino is tons of fun. I built this sign to hang of my balcony for Christmas:
Ran some MLK and Obama quotes in January ’09 too.
Arduino’s premise is the same as the BASIC Stamp, anyone can solder.
The Arduino chip is just an Atmega from Atmel. I just think that if you want to do any REAL WORLD application and develop a real product, you have to go directly to the source. In the end is just another programming layer to the processor.
Wonderful to see a project grow from a pedagogical classroom tool into a widespread open project.
First adopted in the classroom, then by hobbyists, artists, and now, increasingly in the professional world.
Reminds me of the TV-Typewriter from Popular Electronics in 1973 … electronics buffs first latched onto it, then college groups & artists … and it eventually became the PC.
(I’m building a semi-autonomous mini-forklift, controlled by an Arduino Mega.)
ACCEPT THE PAYPAL!

You have died of dysentery: "In 1864, a family embarks on an impossible journey into the untamed American West. Based on the classic educational computer game, The Oregon Trail by MECC."
Tara McGinley points us to this seemingly real series of funny videos on YouTube documenting the Kafkaesque hell that is the daily life of a music store employee.

The google meta description for this website reads, "Which suit is right for you?" I am fond of the Tychem TK710 Chemical Hood, and the baby wrap.
