This is the book we wish we’d had when we were first introduced to agile
methods. We want to show how design and agile are a natural fit together.
How bringing together the people who build the products you design with the

Arduino Projects to Save the World
Arduino Projects to Save the World shows that it takes little more than a few tools, a few wires and sensors, an Arduino board, and a bit of gumption to build devices that lower energy bills, help you grow our own food, monitor pollution in the air and in the ground, even warn you about earth tremors.
