News Globus is an unusual physical interface that piques the curiosity of people and asks them to explore the world by the news putting in relation places of the world. It was designed by Bjorn Karmann, Charlie Gedeon, Mikio Kiura, Sena Partal wiring 20 regions to a Genuino board inside the sphere. When two regions are connected with the jack, the Genuino selects a country randomly from each region and queries the NY Times API for news containing both locations. A web server then selects a story and converts the headline and byline to a mp3 file which is played either from the headphone jack or the speaker at the base of the globe: (more…)

April 2nd was a great day. We spent it celebrating Arduino and Genuino Day in more than 330 local communities and we had lots of fun!
Our social channels were full of mentions from pics and messages about the events and all the activities you organized or took part to worldwide. That’s why we want to keep celebrating and have some of you win goodies.
Now we are launching a giveaway on Instagram and you’re invited to participate! How does it work?
– Follow our official Arduino.cc account on Instagram
– Share your pics on your account on Instagram using hashtag #ArduinoD16 and #GenuinoD16 and mention us with the tag @Arduino.cc
– Every thursday, from April 7th to May 26th we are going to choose one of your pics (posted starting April 2nd) and announce on this blog a winner of an Arduino or a Genuino MKR1000 and one of our t-shirt or mug for a total of of 8 lucky people. Easy enough, right?
Remember to share cool pictures regarding Arduino and Genuino cool moments in your community beyond Arduino and Genuino Day!
We’re looking forward to see your pics!
We are finally ready to release create.arduino.cc, the Arduino platform that will provide the community with a more modern and flexible tool to write code, a more integrated way of accessing content and learning while doing.
While we are still busy refining the web-based Editor (IDE) based on the feedback of the current beta-testing program, we are really excited to launch Arduino Project Hub, our tutorial platform powered by hackster.io. We cannot wait to see all the projects made with Arduino and Genuino boards that you will submit! Comment on the tutorials you are curious about, and ‘Respect’ the ones you like the most. We will feature the best projects on the Arduino Blog!
We are happy to announce Arduino MKR1000 and Genuino MKR1000 are now available in our stores at the price of 34,99$/30,99€ (+tax)!
MKR1000 is the protagonist of World’s largest Arduino Maker Challenge and was shipped exceptionally to 1000 winners of the contest. Now, this powerful board which combines the functionality of the Zero and the WiFi Shield, is available to all makers wanting to design IoT projects with minimal previous experience in networking.
We are sharing some documentation so you can learn more about the features of this new board:
And 4 tutorials focused on the new features of Arduino and Genuino MKR1000:
- Analog to Midi build a device that recognizes an input frequency and outputs it to MIDI
- Wifi RTC use the RTC (Real Time Clock) and the WiFi capabilities
- Scheduled Wifi SSL learn to use scheduled functions to establish a secure web connection
- Battery operations learn more about the battery support of the MKR1000
MKR1000 and Genuino MKR1000 is available for purchase now.
Do you have an Instagram account? We’re launching today the official profile of Arduino.cc and inviting you to follow us!
After Facebook, Twitter and G+, now we are using Instagram to show all of you our events, products, behind the scene moments and getting in touch with all the open source community.
Use hashtags like #Arduinocc, #ArduinoD16, #Genuino and make sure to follow us, and tag us in your pics using @Arduino.cc if you are interested we know about your projects, and share them on all other channels.
More news and goodies to come! Stay tuned.
Moodbox is a musical device created by a group of students (Iskra Uscumlic, Cyrus Kamath, Luca Mustacchi, Dario Loerke) to explore how we might set the mood in a studio space through music. They created it using Genuino Uno during the Interaction Design Programme at CIID with the help of Massimo Banzi and Dario Buzzini.
Last friday in Rome during the press conference of Maker Faire Rome 4th edition, Riccardo Luna together with Massimo Banzi announced that next October the event is going to become “better, bigger and stronger”.
A new location by Fiera di Roma building will host six pavilions in an area of over 100.000 sq.m. for makers, visitors, conferences, seminars and workshops. The event promoted by the Rome Chamber of Commerce and powered by its Innovation Unit “AssetCamera “ is once more curated by Massimo Banzi, Arduino co-founder, along with Riccardo Luna, Italian Digital Champion.
Join us for the Arduino Day event organized by our team at the Jacobs Institute on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley with the participation of Massimo Banzi, David Mellis and Tom Igoe.
We are seeking volunteers to assist us during the event. We are going to have free workshops, talks by the founders, and art and tech displays.
We are looking for volunteer assistance during the event e.g. staffing information tables and displays, bringing a project to demo, helping during workshops, picking up coffee & lunch, and providing technical assistance. This is not a paid gig, but to show our appreciation that you are spending your time with us, Arduino has prepared a small gift for you.
We welcome all levels of skills and curiosity. More important than your technical skills are your people skills. Please provide us with basic information about yourself and your interests. Use the appropriate form depending on whether you have volunteered with us in the past:
First time volunteers? Please fill out this form. If you have volunteered for Arduino before, please contact us at arduinovolunteer [at] gmail.com.
Thinkers and makers at Handsome created an automated Foosball Scoreboard using an Android tablet and Arduino Mega 2560:
the Arduino is responsible only for detecting a) a goal scored and b) the gate in which it was scored. After a goal is detected the Arduino sends this data to Android tablet.
