“The State of Arduino” talk at MakerFaire 2010

I was at the MakerFaire today and I heard people talking about this thing called Arduino. Apparently it’s a religion or something. Anyway, I wanted to learn what all the fuss was about, so I went to a talk about it. The talk was given by a guy named Massimo Banzi. Apparently people tell him all the time that he looks like me. Yeah, I don’t get it either.

Anyway, I recorded the talk so I could share it with you. Enjoy!

  1. “Apparently it’s a religion or something.”

    I can just see the bumper sticker now. It’ll be a picture of a 28 pin DIP shaped like a fish.

  2. That’s what I call a million-dollar idea, George! :)

  3. I’ll take a dozen!
