Arduino Launches Arduino Esplora Open Source Controller

The Arduino Esplora is a microcontroller board derived from the Arduino Leonardo. The Esplora differs from all preceding boards in that it provides a number of built-in, ready-to-use setof onboard sensors for interaction.

The Arduino Esplora is equipped with a Arduino-compatible processor with a light sensor, a temperature sensor, a 3-axis accelerometer, a joystick, a set of pushbuttons, a slider, an RGB LED, and a buzzer. The Esplora uses an Atmega32U4 AVR microcontroller with 16 MHz crystal oscillator and a micro USB connection capable of acting as a USB client device, like a mouse or a keyboard.  The board contains everything needed to support the microcontroller, simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable to get started.
