Episode Sponsor: OKdo

In this Industry Tech Days Keynote, we'll speak with Massimo Banzi, the Co-founder, CTO, and Chairman of Arduino. Arduino recently announced a monumental change in its new efforts towards producing affordable, scalable hardware for industrial automation applications. Hear the how and why of Arduino's jump from the hobbyist bench to the factory floor.

You think you know Arduino, and odds are good that you've earned that idea. After all, Arduino boards can be found in homes, classrooms, and workplaces around the world. But if you haven't thought about Arduino in the context of industrial robotics, you're officially behind the times. 

In this special keynote episode of Moore's Lobby, host Daniel Bogdanoff hangs out with Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi for some relaxed conversation about Arduino's origins and its future.
