Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators

"Arduino is 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.

Arduino can be used to develop interactive objects, taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors, and controlling a variety of lights, motors, and other physical outputs. Arduino projects can be stand–alone, or they can be communicate with software running on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP.) The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open–source IDE can be downloaded for free.

The Arduino programming language is an implementation of Wiring, a similar physical computing platform, which is based on the Processing multimedia programming environment."

Assembling the SparkFun MegaShield

"The Arduino is a popular, in–expensive, open–source microcontroller board and software development enviroment. Arduino boards come in a variety of styles and are available from numerous suppliers including SparkFun Electronics. One recent version of the Arduino is the ArduinoMega. The 'Mega', just as it's name suggests, is an Arduino, supersized. More digital I/O pins. More PWM outputs. More Analog inputs. and 4 UARTS (hardware serial ports). And, if that wasn't enough, more memory."

(Robert Gallup, atomicsalad)
