As I write, I am busy on another computer programing an Arduino board to make little lights flash on and off. Thee guy next to me has made his play Billy Jean...at double speed, which is kind of annoying and fun at the same time.
Arduino is interesting. You have the little circuit board which you wire up, and then you connect it too the computer using a USB, write a program (heh), get it to run, and, if you're lucky, a little light flashes. Or Billy Jean plays at double speed.
It's so much fun!
To put this in a little bit of context, I'm in the middle of a two week synthetic-biology course. People keep trying to get me to do programing, which is slightly disturbing. I am enjoying playing with Arduino though. Almost as much as I enjoyed constructing the bed-side tables last night :D
