• Giveaway: Win A Arduino Uno Microcontroller Board

    BlackBerry gave out Arduino Microcontroller Boards during BlackBerry Jam Americas 2012 last year, and I today I happened to find mine just laying around the office. So, I've decided that it would be better to give it away to a developer that is going to make use of it. BlackBerry has already posted a couple tutorials on how to use the Arduino with BlackBerry devices. One on communicating with NFC, as well as how to build a motion detection camera.

    It's the Arduino Uno model, here are a few details:

    The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
    For more information on the Arduino Uno ($29.95 value), check out their website here.

    Giveaway: To enter to win the Arduino Uno, all you have to do is leave a comment below by this Friday, April 5th, Midnight EST.

    Good luck!
