In recent years, do-it-yourself microcontrollers and sensors have gained increased attention as measurement devices for physics teaching (see, for example, Refs. 1-5). This is not surprising, since Arduinos are relatively cheap and ubiquitous, the code base and design are open source, and there is a wide variety of sensors available. Arduinos can be directly coupled to analysis programs on personal computers and smartphones. This article presents another way of using Arduinos for measurements, namely as portable, standalone devices that store their data on SD memory cards.
