Elektor talks about Arduino
Europeans are used to the fact that we are a conglomerate of multiple cultures. This affects more or less everything, even the press. When it comes to the maker culture, the US has the advantage of having a single market, a single language, and a single culture. On the other hand, Elektor is a brand that has been since long time ago aware of the fact there are people who don’t speak multiple languages (like e.g. English). Therefore their magazine has been published in different languages in different countries since as far as I can remember. At some point I was collecting it in Dutch, German, English and Spanish. You could find the January article on ARM from the Spanish issue, in the Februrary Dutch one, or in the May German one … and vice-versa.
March 2010, Elektor’s English edition brings an article on 20 Open Source Tools. Arduino is featured as the first one of a series of tools that we all admire. It is really nice to be featured in Elektor (though I know it is not the first time, there have been several articles before where readers were using the Arduino board to develop their projects). This same issue brings a very interesting article titled Small & Open Source embedded operating systems that can run on AVR … this means you could probably run many of those small OS on one of the Arduino board models.
