Take a tour of the Arduino… but watch your step

Arduino Fun & Games

engineerzero was kind enough to give a guided tour of a ginormous Arduino Uno to a handful of faceless Google SketchUp denizens recently. Highlights of the tour included a short stroll down Power Street to Analog Alley, where many different kinds of sensors can be connected. The group also had the incredible opportunity to see a red LED being airdropped from a helicopter into digital pin 13. There’s no doubt that it was an extremely dedicated group of Arduino fans making pilgrimage to this site since these daring visitors risked life and limb climbing to the top of the crystal oscillator to get a view of the various components below.
