I’ve just been reading about the new developments in the Arduino world, over at the official blog.
The new Arduino is going to be called “Uno” and replaces the ever-so-slightly-difficult-to-pronounce “Duemilanove”. Looks like they’ll be adding some new sensor modules to the mix, and most exciting of all – providing a *programmable* USB interface chip. That means that the Arduino UNO can present itself to the host computer as a MIDI device, or a mouse, or a keyboard, or… well just about anything really.
I shall definitely be ordering one!
The only slightly negative thing I can say, is that the new packaging looks a bit like cigarettes, or some of the those party balloon things that Madness used to sing about.
