This is a big deal, the open source hardware project for artists, engineers and tinkerers, Ardunio – just hit 10,000th sold! Massimo writes –

Diecimila in italian means “ten thousand” and this marks a moment I would never thought we would reach. Over ten thousand Arduino USB boards have been sold by our manufacturer. It’s a great success and we have to thank all the users who have liked our work and supported us from the beginning.

Arduino is an interesting experiment in the world of open source because we are making an open source software combined with a piece of hardware released under a Creative Commons license. The sales of the hardware have been used to manufacture more hardware and, while adding more and more features to the board, keeping the price more or less the same…

Well, thanks to all of you Arduino supporters, it’s a great experience and we want to keep bringing out new ideas and products to make it easier and cheaper for you to work with electronics.
