Arduino UNO, new logo, and much more…

Post image for Arduino UNO, new logo, and much more…

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.

Hi Steve,

I am new to the Arduino world and trying to write a simple sketch to move mouse using mouse.move function, however, my code does not compile. (I have Arduino Uno and have downloaded v21 code.) Do I need to include a library? And how/where do i get it from?

Thanks!
