In the Maker Shed: Arduino Uno

Arduino Uno
The Arduino Uno from the Maker Shed is a great tool for physical computing and the brains behind many Maker Faire projects — It’s a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer. It’s an open source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board and a development environment for writing software for the board. The Uno is the latest in a series of USB Arduino boards. Comes fully assembled, just add a USB cable and join the revolution!

    I recently took an Arduino class from the guys from Sector67, a new(ish) hacker space in Madison, WI. We used the Arduino Uno, it was great, took an hour to learn, and now I’m hooked.

    Yesterday I even intervied these guys about the classes they teach (including the Arduino 101 and 102 classes).
    It was a riot, and I hope some of your readers in the Wisconsin area will drop in for a class. If anyone’s interested, I hope you’ll check out my ~25 minute conversation at Specifically, the most recent episode 14, from yesterday (

    Would you recomend a real Arduino Uno or will one of the cheaper clones on ebay work just as well?

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
