Arduino in SA
Perhaps you're new to the world of electronics, dabbled a bit and looking for a new challenge, or even if you're a pro that's looking at building an environment-sensing, voice-activated, web-controlled super robot! We're sure that the word "Arduino" has popped up in conversations more than just once. These spectacular development boards are showing up more and more in projects around the globe, and each day their cult following seems to grow and grow...Microcontrollers make the impossible - possible. Maybe you've dreamed of automating your lawnmower to save you time for building cool stuff, or perhaps set up an intelligent alarm system that alerts you via sms when there is activity at your house? A simple Google search with "arduino" plus "what you're wanting to make", will reveal an overflow of projects, gadgets, technology and hacks. Arduino boards feature Atmel microcontrollers and are basically development tools that allow you to prototype pretty much any electronic project that your mind can conjure up.
Somebody out there could be pursuing a similar idea to you, and has possibly got through the teething problems you may face in development
Arduino's active community and open source software (yes, a free software platform) allows you to not only get in touch with people who have at least attempted something like what you're after, but also opens you up to literally copying and pasting code from your web browser into the Arduino software platform on your computer. Within seconds you've uploaded the code via USB directly to your Arduino, plugged in the necessary components, and after the blinking lights have calmed down, your prototype comes to life!
We are distributing a large range of their products, along with a multitude of accessories and components, that will assist you in turning your ideas into prototypes.
