Now for Arduino!

As most of you have probably gathered, when it comes to sensors, I like mine analog. This is mostly because 1. I couldn’t code “hello world” if it were to tell authorities where to find me in a zombie apocalypse and 2. eTextiles are extremely toxic landfill waste. So, I do what I can to use as many recycled materials as possible. Finding recycled materials for use in analog sensors is *much* easier than for programmed.

That said, there are some really awesome things that you can do with micro controllers. Luckily, with boards like the Teensy, Lilypad, Aniomagic, and Arduino, you don’t need to know a ton of code to get started.

If you’re looking to get your feet wet in the world of Arduinos, there are about 50 tutorials put together by Tronixstuff that will more than get you started. They’ve broken lessons down in to easy to digest chapters that include various sensors and links for where you can purchase the various supplies.

Happy learning!
