The BUGduino was designed and built to make the development of custom hardware for your bug
as painless as possible! It's an open ended platform upon which you can build whatever you want. The BUGduino is essentially an AVR breakout board that will play very nicely with your BUGbase. Also, as you might have already guessed, BUGduino is fully Arduino-compatible. This means that it can be programmed using the Arduino IDE, and can be fitted with many of the shields that have already been designed by the members of the Arduino community.
