Kicking it up a notch with Pro Arduino

Over the past few weeks, Bits & Pieces has featured a number of technical books about Atmel-powered Arduinos, including “Arduino Workshop: A Hands-On Introduction with 65 Projects,” “Practical AVR Microcontrollers,” “Exploring Arduino: Tools and Techniques for Engineering Wizardry” and “Arduino in Action.”


And today we’re going to take a closer look at “Pro Arduino,” written by Rick Anderson and Dan Cervo.

“With Pro Arduino, you’ll learn about new tools, techniques and frameworks to make even more ground-breaking, eye-popping projects,” the duo wrote in an official Amazon description. “[For example], you’ll discover how to make Arduino-based gadgets and robots interact with your mobile phone.”

Additional featured projects include creating output with openFrameworks, simulating sensors for testing/debugging, designing games with Gameduino and configuring advanced XBee networks. According to Anderson and Cervo, the book is targeted at Arduino fans, technogeeks and electronic artists who want to take their skills to the next level.

It should be noted that Anderson, who designed the original Arduino Test Suite and is co-designer of the ChipKit Fubarino, is also working on Morse’s Secret Technology, a series of steampunk robotics and Arduino projects.

“Pro Arduino,” written by Rick Anderson and Dan Cervo, is currently available on Amazon for $17.27 [Kindle Edition].
