Arduino Interfacing with Visual Basic

Arduino is a QuickStart Embedded system, very useful in learning both the hardware and software elements of a system.

From what i understand, the developed app can be burned into the device fully, no additional layer of OS or Firmware needed, It is all built in. In short the compiled binary can be either a stand-alone firmware(OS) or be a layer running over a Mobile OS.

Now putting Ardunio and VB together, we get an Hardware/Software Environment that is easy on students and hobbyists too.
