Boards, Boards, Boards! It's all about the boards that are rocking the Maker world. We're in a gold rush of controllers and mini-computers, putting raw power into your hands and giving you the ability to express whatever your imagination can suggest. What was once the domain of giant electronics manufacturers only a few years ago can now be shipped to you overnight to play with, and help you develop your own amazing projects. Do your think Arduino is il migliore? Do you salivate for a piece of Raspberry Pi? Does your tail wag at the idea of a BeagleBone? In MAKE Volume 36, we're taking a deep dive on the boards that are fueling a new smart device revolution. From workshop hobbyists to the innovators taking accessible technology to new levels, people are hungry for the scoop on this rapidly-iterating field, and if you want to get in front of the smartest makers around, this issue is for you.
