Ever wanted to build something cool and be creative? Building a mini computer with custom software? Well with this UNO R3 development board for Arduino you can so some pretty cool stuff!
What is Arduino? It’s an open-source electronics platform that works to build cool stuff with easy-to-use hardware and software. They have their own software you can download and start writing code in their programming language! And with cool Arduino boards you can do very creative stuff.
UNO R3 can use sensors like LED lights, buzzers, buttons and more. It comes with a high-speed microprocessor controller ATMEGA328, development interface and interface easy to understand and good for beginners that is just starting out experimenting with new technology and software.
Seems like on comments that I saw for it that it was no problems linking it to Windows 10 but for Windows 7 you would need a driver fix. And that the red built-in diode can be annoying. Linux should also be no problems to install. Which is good to know.
Some amazing things people have done with arduino is a self balancing robot, a robot that can paint, OLED smart watch, spider robot walking on the floor, a quadcopter that reminds about drones, a gesture controlled robotic arm, Rubik’s cube solver, 3D printer and ball and plate PID control. As you can see this is a very advanced software and hardware that could be used to build powerful stuff.
A lot of it comes down to creativity. Most of programming languages features many same features and ideas just done in a slightly different way. With AI and Robotics on the rise in the world this is a good thing to invest in. The original Arduino board is a bit more expensive. UNO R3 is more affordable and it comes with good reviews. I’m thinking about getting it myself just to experiment around!
