The Arduino is a very useful little device for extending computer control outside of your desktop or laptop. With one of these little guys you can start to manipulate other electronics in a matter of minutes. Among other things, I’m surprised I don’t see more circuit benders picking them up and wiring them into instruments. On this page I will be gradually writing and collecting information on the arduino platform that musicians and artists can dig into.
