According to its website, “Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.” Microcontrollers are used in everyday objects, from watches, to calculators to greeting cards.
