Do you want to make things blink? Build interactive art? Construct robots to take over the world? The Arduino is for you. It’s intended for artists, designers, and hobbyists not engineers. It is an easy to use device made for real people.

We’re hoping for have a small 555 night on the Monday to introduce people to the wonders of 555 timer IC.
