Hi, Arduino has introduced new hardware and future plans at the Maker Faire of New York. Just at the end of the "Engadget article":http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/19/arduino-brings-the-new-goods-to-maker-faire-new-york-welcomes/ it is said:
bq. Massimo was already talking up the next-gen system though, that would leverage Nokia's QT framework and a plugin system to expand its capabilities and offer developers a more professional solution for building Arduino-based products.
The Arduino project & community are utterly interesting and a connection with the Qt project & community would be utterly cool. If you know more please share in this thread.
