you can plug arduino via usb to a computer/laptop to use the computer/laptop for the main programm logic, using arduino only as sensor&actuator…
but powering an laptop all time..
hmm.. is there anything out there, using Python directly on the arduino?
you could use a cellphone/handy with symbian S60 and nokias DeveloperKit
arduino + Symbian S60
or something more like this, python on a chip
arduino + py-on-a-chip
so i am waiting for a extra ArduinoPythonShield, in the plug and play way…
that would be great.. solving many starting problems with C/C++
having more fun, faster results..
