Arduino is an open-source development environment. The board consists of an Atmel microcontroller and a few other elements. Arduino circuits are suitable for research or prototypical use, and adapted to all operating systems.

Arduino is a simple tool that can be used by both beginners and those with background knowledge. Arduino and various modules (such as a relay board, a LCD module, various sensors, and so on) are quite basic, and ready for instant programming.

At the workshop we will discover Arduino Uno and different modules, and set up our programming environment. We will explore the field of intermedia arts and learn about artworks that use technology and programming as part of their creative process.

An Arduino is an open-source microcontroller development board. In plain English, you can use the Arduino to read sensors and control things like motors and lights. This allows you to upload programs to this board which can then interact with things in the real world. With this, you can make devices which respond and react to the world at large.

Basically, if there is something that is in any way controlled by electricity, the Arduino can interface with it in some manner. And even if it is not controlled by electricity, you can probably still use things which are (like motors and electromagnets), to interface with it. The possibilities of the Arduino are almost limitless.

Arduino is a motherboard microcontroller, designed to make the process of using electronics in multidisciplinary projects more accessible. The hardware consists of an open-source board and an 8-bit Atmel AVR or a 32-bit Atmel ARM microcontroller. The software consists of a standard programming language, a compiler, and a boot loader, which is performed in the microcontroller. Arduino shields can be bought ready-to-use, or as DIY versions.   
The microcontroller was developed at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea in Ivrea, Italy, and represents one of the earliest milestones in the evolution of open-source hardware in general. Open-source hardware shares much of the principles and approach of free and open-source software.
