Arduino shape...

Why are the arduino board shaped the way they are (with that “bump” on one side) instead of being a plain rectangle?

Just curious…

Style, my friend. After all, the Italians are masters of design. :slight_smile:

thanks mellis :slight_smile:

Remember that Arduino started as a tool for designers… and plain green rectangles are sooo boring… only an engineer would find a green rectangle exciting :slight_smile:

so we decided to give it a special shape… david quartielles came up with the shape and I picked the colour
