Arduino IDE 1.6.2 released and available for download

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Arduino IDE 1.6.2

A new version of the Arduino IDE (1.6.2) is available at the download page!

The Arduino IDE 1.6.2 features new one click install of boards and libraries.

With 1.6.2, two new menu items are available: “Sketch > Include Library > Manage Libraries…” and “Tools > Board > Boards Manager…”

We have written two guides that explain how to use them. Discover how to use the Library Manager and how to install support for additional boards.

If you don’t find your preferred library in the list, let us know: open an issue on github and request us to add the library you love! (more…)

More than 250 groups in the world are celebrating Arduino Day!

ARDUINODAY15

Tomorrow we are celebrating Arduino and its community with a day of official and self-organised gatherings, encouraging people to meet and share their interest in open source DIY electronics with neighbors and friends. More than 250 user groups, makerspaces, hackerspaces, fablabs, schools, studios, and educators around the world joined us with a series of unique activities designed for a wide range of audiences and skillsets.

Like last year we created a map to identify all community events going on throughout Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa,  Australia and make it easier for you to find an event near you on the Arduino Day website . In 2015 even more collectives appeared on the map, you can explore them now clicking on the pic below: (more…)

It’s about us: meet the people working at Arduino

Friday, March 20th, 2015

AboutUs

Today we are adding to Arduino website a new important page. It’s called About Us and presents all the people working at Arduino, side by side with the Arduino founders, from different locations around the world.

Our big team, with its multifaceted skillset, takes care of the complexity of an open-source hardware project like Arduino, made by the Hardware, the Software, the Design of all the artifacts and the user experience, the coordination of these activities by the Management, and of course the work with its Community of volunteers and enthusiasts.

This almost invisible works helps Arduino thrive and hopefully makes it easier for you to learn electronics and have fun!

Come meet us on March 28th in all the official locations of Arduino Day!

 

Dear Arduino community, we need to talk

Friday, March 20th, 2015

This is the message Massimo Banzi’s just published on the forum.

——————

Today is the day of a solar eclipse, some of these are once in a lifetime events.

Arduino is definitely one of the events that will define my life along with many other people’s life.

I’m feeling incredibly blessed to have contributed to create this amazing community which gathered around the idea that we can empower people to master complex technologies and unleash their ability to create with them.

Dear community I’m sorry I didn’t comment earlier, I was keeping quiet to try to find a resolution to our internal issues that would not damage you, the community.

We’ve been so committed to keep the issues internal that for a year we haven’t receiving any royalty from the boards made in Italy, but we continued to work hoping to find a solution. I’ve told the story to Make read it if you want to know more.

Now the other party has abandoned the negotiating table and, after a lot of recent events, the cat is out of the bag. I owe you to be part of what is going on.

We created Arduino based on a set of values that have enabled the community to grow, touch any kind of people and contribute to changing the world a bit.

I am here to say that we will continue to fight so that Arduino stays true to those values. There is only one Arduino and there is only one Arduino community. We’re strong, we’re having a positive impact on so many people’s life.

We have so many news we want to share with you but be patient until Arduino Day, let’s celebrate together the amazing community we are (261 Global events!!!) , and you’ll know more.

I’m sure you have a lot of questions an we’re going to try to answer them in due time, compatibly with the fact that lawyers are involved and I can’t say too much.

An eclipse is just a temporary moment of darkness, but soon after the sun comes back shining.

The sun is about to come out, wear your sunglasses!!

After almost two years “in the making” we’re thrilled to announce the availability of the Arduino IDE 1.6.0. The latest version of the development environment used by millions of people across the globe brings about a lot of improvements.

Since the day we started developing the first 1.5 version we have received a lot of feedback, suggestions and contributions from our vibrant community and we would like to thank you all for your passion and good will: thank you everyone, you rock! :-) (more…)

Casa Jasmina: a New Domestic Italian Landscape (NEW WEBSITE!)

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Last October at Maker Faire Rome, Massimo Banzi, Bruce Sterling and Lorenzo Romagnoli announced a new exciting project.
The project, called Casa Jasmina, is a real Apartment in Turin, hosted by Toolbox Coworking in a old industrial building already shared by Officine Arduino (the Italian Arduino headquarter), and Fablab Torino.

The apartment will serve as test bed for the latest development from the open source community. We will explore the boundaries in the field of open source connected home showcasing the best of open source furnitures, connected objects, and white goods hacks.

Shortly anyone will have the opportunity to experience living in a open source connected home, Casa Jasmina will be available for rent on Airbnb.

Do you want to collaborate with us or propose your ideas? Please check the partnership opportunities and get in touch! hashtag #CasaJasmina

Today we are launching the official online presence of the project and to celebrate the kickoff of Casa Jasmina website, we are happy to share Bruce Sterling thoughts on the project.

A New Domestic Italian Landscape

A lot has already been said about the Internet of Things, so the time has come to attempt to live the dream.

As a science fiction writer and design critic, I’m all for speculation. However, the IoT is no longer a theory. It features genuine industrial consortia, proliferating standards, and exciting new capacities in sensors, data, and analytics. The Internet of Things is coming into the home, and that most definitely includes the Italian home. (more…)
