One of the most difficult parts of any Arduino project is coming up with a way to interact with your creations. The Arduino Esplora is an open-source controller that takes care of that problem.
As you would expect, the Esplora launches with a library of code to get you started. The Esplora certainly looks like a game controller, but since it’s the only Arduino that comes with a bunch of different input options it’s also a great way to get started with Arduino without worrying about soldering or breadboards.
