What is Arduino?

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs, like light sensors, activating a motor, turning on an LED, etc. Note! outside USA they have changed the name to Genuino.

A lots of different Arduino boards exists, but Arduino UNO is the most popular and used Arduino board.

Arduino is very popular in IoT projects and applications.

Want to buy an Arduino? You can buy it many places online, e.g., Kjell & Company (Norway), Elfa, RS, Sparkfun, DigiKey, ebay, etc.

You can either buy an Arduino Starter Kit or just the board (e.g., Arduino UNO), but then you need USB-cable, a breadboard, different sensors, etc. in addition. An Arduino Starter Kit includes everything you need to get started with Arduino.
