Does /g/ hate Arduino?

>>30002284 No, we're just too dumb to put an arduino board to good use.

>>30002527 >Rasbperry Pi HEY GUYS LOOK IT CAN RUN UBUNTU! NOT LIKE SOME OTHER ARM DEVICE COULD DO THAT BUT YOU KNOW... OH, 6 MONTH SHIPPING? THAT'S WORTH THE WAIT!

>>30002527 This is the problem with arduino. It isn't a computer. The raspberry pi isn't a motor controller, but its a computer. Basically what I'm saying is it seems expensive and big for what it does.

With the Uno, Arduino is finally living up to its potential, and it turns out that there just isn't a lot there that intersects with what /g/ is actually capable of. Arduino's popularity was based on hopes of what it might eventually be capable of rather than reality.

>>30002556 >>30002592 sorry, I should put some context in. Apparently I upset a few people. I was just commenting on the fact that it is a neat piece of machinery that often people buy and then not know what to do with it. Arduino is good for amateur robotics and neat senor stuff (like programming your lights to go on, or sprinkler system or some shit). I am just saying unless you have a starter project in mind it isn't going to do much for you.

>>30002556 Naw dude just buy it from a reseller off of Amazon. Along with the accessories it ends up being $100. Totally worth it though because I didn't have enough Linux boxes collecting dust in my basement.

nowadays /g/ doesn't know shit, it's a casual consumer electronics board. If you know what you're doing you should check out /diy/. Great place for hobbyist electronics

>>30002697 So did I, and I bought two. Honestly at $5 and free shipping it was worth it for the usb cables alone. So what should I do with them? Any ideas?

>>30002731 >Will it fit in [my ass]? Doesn’t quite work, I’m afraid – because we don’t round off the edges of the board, it’s a little too [sharp] to fit the [ass].

>>30002723 Mini-USB is the worst USB, and the cables are too short for most uses.

>>30002978 Technology and "doing things yourself" can go hand in hand. There's bound to be a bit of overlap where a thread can go either here or in /diy/

>>30003614 just depressing. Tired of jumping boards. Oh well, time to jump I guess.
