1. what is arduino ?

1.1. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software

2. projects

2.1. Do you oversleep often, or can’t you get out of your bed? Our MultiFunctional Clock solves this problem.

2.2. Want to customise your skateboard or electric skateboard with programmable RGB LEDs?!

3. background

3.1. Erases everything currently on the LCD screen with the indicated color. Can be used in loop() to clear the screen. While background() expects 8-bit values for each of the red, green, and blue channels, the screen does not display with this fidelity. The red and blue values are scaled to 5-bit color (32 discrete steps), and the green is 6-bit color (64 discrete steps).

4. programing language

4.1. Arduino programming language can be divided in three main parts: structure, values (variables and constants), and functions.

5. use

5.1. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring), and the Arduino Software (IDE), based on Processing.

6. type of boards

6.1. Arduino uno This is the latest revision of the basic Arduino USB board. It connects to the computer with a standard USB cable and contains everything else you need to program and use the board.

6.2. Arduino Duemilanove The Duemilanove automatically selects the appropriate power supply (USB or external power), eliminating the need for the power selection jumper found on previous boards.

6.3. Arduino NG 240 The Arduino NG uses the FTDI FT232RL USB-to-Serial converter, which requires fewer external components that the FT232BM.
