Pinguino - a PIC-based Arduino
Everyone knows an Arduino... For the PIC-lovers, there is an alternative, based on Microchip stuff: A Pinguino.
Pinguino is an Arduino-like board based on a PIC 18F2550 Microcontroller with an integrated IDE easy to use on Linux, Windows and MacOSX.
Compatible with the breadboards, Pinguino is the perfect solution for simple rapid prototyping, or learning the basics on microelectronics.
The IDE is built in Python language. It has a pre-processor, which converts the Arduino-specific instructions into the C code.
