This Giant Arduino Actually Works… Kind Of

Any maker who loves their Arduino wishes they had more. Typically though, they don’t simply mean BIGGER. Zach, however, did mean bigger: 12 times bigger!

Zach’s giant Arduino is mainly comprised of wood, cnc milled to look like the tiny blue board. A fresh coat of paint and some 3d printed connectors and chips bring the project home.

This thing isn’t entirely just a prop for looks. Zach has hidden an actual Arduino uno within it and connected a few of the pins, allowing you to “use” the large Arduino for some simple tasks.


I get ridiculously excited seeing people make things. I just want to revel in the creativity I see in makers. My favorite thing in the world is sharing a maker's story. You can find me on twitter at @calebkraft
