Earlier this week, the much anticipated Arduino Due microcontroller was released. Improved in almost every regard, the prototyping community is thrilled with the possibilities that it creates.
The new boards are already shipping, and Jon Gottfried sent me some photos that compare its size with the ever-popular Arduino Uno.
“Just got my Arduino Due from @adafruit — pretty neat, much larger than the Uno,” he tweeted, following up that it “Looks like the layout is similar enough to fit old shields.”
Gottfried, a Developer Evangelist at Twilio, has put together a few interesting Arduino projects of his own, including setting up a home automation system that let him control his AC remotely.
He also sent photos of the new board with the Raspberry Pi and diminutive Arduino Fio for further size comparison.
