Arduino’s new Intel Curie based board “Arduino 101” launched


arduino-101
The famous learning and development platform Arduino announced its new microcontroller Arduino 101 which will ship with Intel Curie onboard. It is the first product to use Intel Curie module and has been designed in collaboration with Intel. The Arduino 101 (USA only) and the Genuino 101 (outside USA)  is scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2016, at about $30, which seems quite affordable.
Arduino 101 uses same programming environment as Arduino Uno with added Intel’s libraries. With all features of classic Arduino Uno it will have an onboard Bluetooth, 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope.
