So my flatmates gave me an Arduino board for my birthday :D, but left the choice whát board to me. I hadn't heard of Arduino before, but looked a bit around on the site and forum so I now (very basically) know what it can do.
Things I'd like to try with the Arduino are mainly related to photography, think of a lightning-based trigger, sound-based trigger, triggering by interrupting a laser beam, etc.
I figured the Arduino Uno has everything I need, but I just want to be sure there's not a board available that's better for those goals.
Thanks a lot!
