Overview

Program and build fun devices with the Arduino microcontroller development system



30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius shows you how to use Arduino—the open-source physical computing platform. You’ll master Arduino through a series of projects while learning the required simplified C programming--no prior programming experience necessary. Projects include: a servo-controlled laser, a USB-controlled fan, a light harp, a USB temperature logger, a sound “oscilloscope,” and many more.



Arduino’s built-in USB makes it perfect for interfacing a home computer to external electronics, and it can be used with Windows, Mac, and Linux. The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open-source IDE can be downloaded for free.



30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius



  • Includes hands-on projects with step-by-step instructions, illustrations, photographs, and diagrams

  • Assumes no prior knowledge of programming or electronics--every detail is fully explained from the ground up

  • Reveals the theory behind the projects

  • Explains how to install the software, interact with the Arduino board, and gain fundamental Arduino programming skills

  • Shows how to develop projects that connect the PC to electronic devices

    The cover is a bit misleading but the content is awesome

    You really have to enjoy the flexibility of the Arduino board in order to see that this book is barely a nudge in the right direction. I have not programmed many IC boards but have used PLCs and many times I slammed my head against the desk when dealing with what should have been open-source code (only it was not exactly so). I see how this book gave me a taste in the new-found world of technophytes. The introduction is just enough and so are the hands-on projects + examples.
