Graphical Development Environment for Arduino controller type boards

Arduino and Arduino compatible controller boards have become a favorite way to control automate and animate many Maker's projects.
Connecting sensors, actuators, and displays to Arduinos is easy and fun. Programming the boards however has proven challenging for many Makers. The Arduino IDE is simple, and easy to use, however it offers very little aside from basic code editing functionality. Programming the Arduinos for anything more complex than blinking LED or reading a sensor, requires fair programming knowledge and has proven obstacle to many Makers, preventing them from making their dream projects.
It has become a common practice for Makers to look around for ready project, and if they find one copy and paste the code, if not simply give up. Coding has proven an obstacle to the world of creativity.
To solve this, Visuino It is designed in such a way that it allows anyone without any programming experience or knowledge to intuitively visually program Arduinos.

Viduino is designed around the concept of software components. Each component represents ready to use functionality. Some of the components represent and are designed to control real hardware such as Sensor, Motor or Servo, others are representing pure software functionality such as signal generator, filter, mathematical function, or communication protocol.

The components have connection points called "Pins", and the Pins can be connected with "Wires" sending data between the components. Each component can have one or more pins capable of sending and receiving different data types.

Visuino also includes components for sending multiple data channels through the Serial Port, and the Visuino IDE has Scope and Visual Instruments that can display the multichannel data, allowing the Maker to monitor and display simultaneously multiple sensors or data points from the project.

In the spirit of Open Source development, all Arduino libraries for Visuino has been made Open Source and are available on Bitbucket:

https://bitbucket.org/mitov/visuino-libraries

and Sourceforge:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/visuino-components/

I have created G+ Community for the Visuino developers, and it has reached almost 7500 members.

Visuino uses an open component architecture, and anyone can develop their own components for it. I have created and posted SDK for Visuino components development. The SDK is currently available in the G++ Community.

A Visuino Wiki documentation is also available:
