The Arduino Playground

Welcome to the Arduino Playground, a wiki where all the users of Arduino can contribute and benefit from their collective research.

This is the place to post and share your own code, circuit diagrams, tutorials, DIY instructions, tips and tricks, and after all the hard work, to show off your projects! Anyone can edit and add to the pages here.

Arduino Playground is a work in progress. We can use all the help you can give, so please read the Participate section and get your fingers typing!
