"The Arduino project is a hacker's dream: originally designed as a way of getting students involved in microcontroller programming and electronic design, it offers a quick and easy route for programmers to take their skills out of the digital realm and into the physical.

"Better yet, the Arduino's plug and play nature and the C-based programming environment mean that it's easy to get started, even if you lack experience in electronics. To prove it, this three-part project is going to walk you through building a simple Arduino music box, programming it with the Arduino IDE, integrating it with your PC, and finally adding a useful LCD display to your project."
