Arduino can be simply termed as a microcontroller which can be controlled by the program embedded in them by the user. Arduino is a very user-friendly controller board and comes in many configurations (Arduino Uno/Nano with various versions) based on the requirements of the user. Arduino is programmed in C/C++ language.

Arduino has endless possibilities and a user can do a vast number of projects by using it. But some of the Arduino projects which are very cool and innovative are discussed in the article.

Is Arduino good for beginners?

Arduino is a very beginner-friendly microcontroller. Any user with basic C programming knowledge can program an Arduino with ease. Since it is opensource it has an active community of enthusiasts where everyone is sharing their knowledge to help others.

Arduino vs Raspberry Pi

Working with Arduino is easy when compared to a raspberry pi. Arduino can perform only a single program or operation at a time whereas as raspberry pi is like a mini-computer which runs Multiple programs at a time. Hence for beginners, it is advised to start with Arduino.

Cool Arduino projects for beginners

There are endless projects you can make by using Arduino. You can solve a small basic problem with too big complex problems. You can make a project using Arduino for home applications as well as industrial applications.

 Some of the cool Arduino projects are:

1. Animatronic hand using Arduino


The animatronic hand project is based on animatronic technology. It is a technology that facilitates the working of machines as humans by mimicking humans, as well as animal’s functionality and movements like smiling, picking, moving fingers, etc., isn’t it a cool technology.

The animatronic hand can identify and replicate the same actions the user does with his hands like making gestures with fingers and seeing the animatronic hand mimics it perfectly. In this Arduino project, you will develop one such project where it will copy your hand movements. You will use Servo motors, Flex sensors and Arduino board to build this project.
