This is what started it all! Arduino was the first range of products that Little Bird Electronics started selling....back in 2006! Unable to get the boards he needed Marcus's lecturer at university suggested he start importing and selling them and so Little Bird was born.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy to use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs- such as a light on a sensor, a finger on a button or a Twitter message- and convert it into an output- such as activating a motor or turning on an LED. Arduino is used by many people worldwide (students, programmers, hobbyists, and professionals) to create projects that differ from the everyday to complex scientific instruments.
