So today I decided to write about a topic I have not mentioned on my blog before and is not Java related. Few months ago, I’ve got my hands on an Arduino compatible board for the first time. I was pretty intrigued to explore what this little guy can actually do and following article is a brief review of my first encounters with micro controllers as such. I was able to try out a few small programs and check basic properties of this board and tried out some sensor work. Reading this article may serve as a teaser for those who are considering jumping into the world of Arduinos and a review of my starting kit of choice for those who are considering any such purchase.
