Massimo Interview for FairCompanies About ArduinoMassimo Interview for FairCompanies About ArduinoMassimo Interview for FairCompanies About Arduino
The Arduino- an affordable, open source microcontroller board- has been touted as connecting the real world to your computer. To get an idea of what that means, here is just a sample of sustainability-related projects created by the Arduino community:
- Battery life extender
- DIY Water meter
- Tweeting, self-watering garden system
- Open energy monitor
- Sun-tracking solar panel
In this video, we talk to Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi about the power of the Arduino, how it’s “not for nerds” and how it was kept alive by the fact that it was open source.
By the way: SmartProjects, (Arduino main producer in Italy) joined Impatto Zero back in 2008, by planting half a squared meter for each Arduino board produced.
