Wow! look how far this platform has come. For a multi national such as National Instruments to pop and provide support for the Arduino platform is huge!. However, is it in the spirit of open source I ask? and if not, why not? It surely would be a win-win if NI did make an open source entry level interface surely?

This is a nice project that integrates physical computing (a la arduino) and Flash. I have been looking for an example like this for awhile. Whether I actually get around to doing this in the near future is another thing all together! ….read on
Some wise advise from the guys at www.snowulf.com “One of the many little tidbits of advice I found when reading up on Arduino was to protect your computer’s USB port. By that I mean buy a powered USB hub to plug the Arduino into. That way if you do something epicly stupid, you’d burn out [...]
It never ceases to amaze me the boundaries that people traverse with the arduino, at one scale we have people who know nothing about electronics and programming using this ubiquitous device (arduino!) and at the other end of the scale people who traditionally work solely in software fields pushing this device into an arena I’m [...]
There are a lot of solutions to programing an Arduino: the default avr-g++, Studio, etc. But [Sandeep] let us know about using one of the more powerful IDEs out there, Eclipse, to do the same. We’ve already outlined why Eclipse is a great IDE but now the fact that you can use it in your [...]
