Wiring: open source hardware for open source software

"Wiring is a programming environment and electronics i/o board for exploring the electronic arts, tangible media, teaching and learning computer programming and prototyping with electronics. It illustrates the concept of programming with electronics and the physical realm of hardware control which are necessary to explore physical interaction design and tangible media aspects."

More intelligbily, it is the sister open project of Processing, the open source programming lanuguage for artists and designers. It makes sense that there should be an open source I/O (input/output, ie. to connect peripheral devices to your Processing program) device, and here it is.
