Microprocessors and prototyping boards are nothing new. What is new is the proliferation of low-cost, maker friendly boards. And Arduino is arguably the one that started it all.

Since it was conceived by a group of students in Italy’s Interaction Design Institute Irvea in 2005, Arduinos have been embraced by artists and makers and gone on spur an exploding ecosystem of easy-to-use, open-source boards.

MAKE’s just-released Vol. 36 delves into the world of boards and includes a detailed photo illustration of the evolution of Arduino. Pick up a copy of the magazine to see if for yourself or download the poster here.
