The Raspberry pi is a low-cost computer of the size of a credit card which is connected to a monitor or a televisión and which uses an standard keyboard and mouse. It is a small device that allows people of all ages to explore computing and allows to learn to programme in languages such as Scratch and Python. It is capable of doing everythingthat is expected of a desk computer. Surf the Internet, reproduce high definition videos, making spreadsheets, execute Word processors and play games.
And what is more, the Raspberry Pi has the capacity of interacting with the outside world and has been used in a wide range of projects of makers, from music machines to aviary meteorological stations that twit the atmospheric changes they detect.
Arduino is an open code platform of prototype base don hardware and software easy to use. Arduino boards are able to read the inputs (the light in a sensor, a finger in a button or a message in Twitter) and turn i tinto an exit (the activation of a motor, switch on a LED, publish something in the Internet). You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller of the board. For this, the programming language of Arduino is used.
Through the years Arduino has been the brain of thousands of projects, from daily objects to scientific complex instruments. A world wide Makers community (students, amateurs, artists, programmers and proffesionals) and counts on a great support in the net.
Arduino counts on many devices that make of it the perfect platform to develop any idea o technologic projects
With the irruption of the IT there is a whole world to develop and Arduino is the ideal tool that will help us to carry out our ideas. From “connecting” our clothes to the Internet and showing the number of followers we count on in real time, to providing our piece of clothes with enough intelligence to monitorize our heart rhythm while we are doing sports.
