Overview What is Arduino What flavors does it come in Shields and add on hardware Examples of projects
What is an Arduino 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.
Arduino Team Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, Gianluca Martino, and David Mellis. Nicholas Zambetti has contributed since the beginning.
What is Open Hardware Open-source hardware shares Release all of the original design files (Eagle CAD) for the Arduino hardware. These files are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license, which allows for both personal and commercial derivative works, as long as they credit Arduino and release their designs under the same license.

What is Open Software The Arduino software is also open-source. The source code for the Java environment is released under the GPL and the C/C++ microcontroller libraries are under the LGPL. The source code for Arduino is now hosted on GitHub.
