Robust Community Makes Arduino Perfect for DIY Robotics
Maker Faire - San Mateo Fairgrounds
Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine, explains the phenomenal rise of the Arduino physical computing platform and why it has become a preferred platform for small-scale robotics. Cheap, easy to use and surprisingly powerful, Arduino can control everything from walkers and rovers to boats, blimps and drones. Anderson's presentation gives an overview of what's possible with Arduino, including some demonstrations of Arduino-powered Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
