We founded Venus Supply Co., Ltd. on 2004 to sourcing and reselling SMD electronics component, evaluation boards, robotics kit, sensor, etc. Mainly focus on rare products that are hard to find in the Thailand market. Also, we have a research and development team to support our customers hardware design and production needs.

In 2006, we launched an e-commerce website ( to provide Thai hobbyists, students, teachers, researchers, and developers with a fast and easy way get hardware. We started with a small office in our founder’s apartment, and in 2011, opened our training center. Today, we have various embedded training courses, such as Embedded Linux, Windows CE, Eagle PCB design, and also customized courses for customers.

In total, we have three departments dedicated to e-commerce, R&D, and education.

- What’s your company’s super power?

We are experienced on various technologies related to embedded systems and we can design hardware, firmware, and software.

- Do you have a favorite Arduino/Genuino product?

- Tell us a bit more about Core Electronics.

Core Electronics is based in Newcastle, Australia. Since 2007, we have brought together creative products from around the world (now including Genuino!) to empower innovative Makers in Australia. The Arduino team and community have been an integral part of the Maker Movement, and we’re honestly excited to support Genuino here in Australia.

- What’s your company’s super power? 

It would have to be that Core Electronics is powered by a staff of Makers and DIYers. This means we’re passionate about what we do and “we get it” when it comes to product support.

- What’s your favourite Arduino or Genuino project?

Robotanic” from VIVID Sydney 2015. VIVID Sydney is a very popular annual event where art, technology and commerce intersect. The “Robotanic” installation was a digital garden of organically shaped nodes with plant-like characteristics. Each node varied in shape and height. When touched, the nodes would put on a show of erratic light and would respond to motion-sensors, which triggered sounds associated with nature as if the environment was coming to life. At the heart of each node was an Arduino Mega.

It was a sensational project and we helped with a couple of product selections to get the team on track. I’ve showcased this project as it’s an example where creativity meets technology; enabled by Arduino and the broader community.

After GermanySpain, Canada and Portugal,  now it’s time to introduce a new Genuino Reseller from Italy: Melopero.


- Tell us a bit more about Melopero

We founded Melopero in 2015. Since then, we constantly added new products to our portfolio, the objective was to create a company of makers for makers. We have been waiting so intensely for Genuino to become available and finally we have it. Welcome Genuino!

- What’s your company’s super power

We love to support our customers giving them advice on the best hardware solution they can use to build their amazing projects.

What’s your favourite Arduino or Genuino project?

The Inebriator – Arduino Cocktail Machine by Ian Cooper and Jake Osborne

Why: Making a good cocktail is an art, and it’s not easy to mix the right quantities in the right sequence. This machine solves the equation! See video on Youtube.


Secret Knock Detecting Lock by Steve Hoefer

Why: We like this project because it’s an effective way to show the ability of Arduino in sensing the real word. See video on Youtube and explore how to make it on Instructables.

- Tell us a bit more about RobotShop

At RobotShop, we specialize in personal and professional robot technology and offer a wide range of robotic products and services in this sector. We have offices in USA, Canada and France. Our vision is to be the world leading source for personal and professional robot technology that help increase the pleasure, knowledge, liberty and security of individuals. We are also committed to promoting and advocating the interest and necessity of robotics use towards positive ends, allowing humanity to attain a better world.

- What’s your company’s super power

Putting robotics at your service!

- What’s your favourite Arduino or Genuino project?

We enjoy Arduino robots and projects from beginners that are starting in robotics. For example this Arduino robot from a beginner on the Let’s Make Robots Blog and forum. We like it because it represents the Arduino and Genuino brand well with a simple and fun “do it yourself” / hobbyist project. This is the meaning of Arduino; for anyone to be able to build a robot or interactive project easily. This is why we help the way we can, by providing Arduino tutorials that can help beginners as well as more advanced Arduino users.

Some weeks ago we started introducing to the community our list of resellers and the updated page where you can find resellers of Genuino and Arduino products around the world.

We started with Watterott from Germany and now, in the picture below,  you can see Diego and Oscar from BricoGeek  based in Spain and ready to ship  Genuino Uno and Genuino Mega  boards!


Let’s get to know them better:

- Tell us a bit more about BricoGeek

We started our company in 2005 and later in 2007 we became one of the first Arduino official distributors for Spain and Portugal. After winning a board in a contest organized by I had so much fun with my new board, I continued to make more projects which I posted in our blog and realised that this little board was really easy to understand and I could make  great things with it. Many of our viewers also enjoyed our projects and started making too. And here we are, 10 years later, sharing projects and growing our community of fellow makers!

- What’s your company’s super power?

We aim to be honest and don’t fool our customers. We try to make BricoGeek a good place to share knowledge and ideas and it seems our customers love that as much as we do.

- What’s your favorite Arduino or Genuino project?

[Oscar] There are so many projects I like and it’s hard to keep track of all of them but I recently discovered a really cool project called “Cubetto” which is a game with a little robot to help kids understand and learn programming. And from the same guys another one called “Toot” also for kids and based on the Montessori learning system. Im working on very similar projects that hopefully I will release them in a few weeks (but shhh it’s a surprise for my daughter! ;D). I really enjoy when I make a project that helps young people learn new technical skills, you will be surprised how smart kids can be when they really enjoy learning.

In 2015 we’ve been setting-up an independent, modular production network with world-class partners that share our very own approach to open source hardware. We partnered with manufacturers and resellers including Adafruit in United States, Seeedstudio in China, Axel in Italy.

Now we are happy to share with our community the updated page dedicated to resellers, making Genuino and Arduino products available around the world. On the  page you can find all the info and links to get in touch if you are interested in purchasing  boards in your country, or you want to become one of our resellers.

From today  we’ll be also highlighting new resellers on the Arduino blog, so you can get to know them better.

Watterott Electronic (Germany)

The team of Watterott Electronic is manufacturing Genuino boards and is the official Genuino reseller for Germany. We started selling Genuino boards manufactured by Watterott during Maker Faire Rome 2015.

In the picture you can see Stephan Watterott of Watterott Electronic (Germany) holding brand new Genuino boards ready to be shipped!



- Tell us a bit more about Watterott

I founded the company Watterott Electronic in early 2008 as a hobby project in Hausen (Thuringia, Germany). The goal was to offer some own microcontroller boards and special hard to find development components.
My first warehouse was in the garage of my parents house. After about 2 years the garage was to small and I moved to the city of Leinefelde (only 5km away). Until today I added more and more products to our portfolio and also the manufacturing of own boards has increased. Finally at the end of 2015 we became a manufacturer and reseller for Genuino boards.

- What’s your company’s super power?

We can do nearly everything in-house and so we a very short time from the idea to a prototype or final product/board.

- What’s your favorite Arduino or Genuino project?

I have two favorite Arduino/Genuino projects:

  • DIY-Thermocam (previously Cheap Thermocam) from Max Ritter.
    I followed the project from the first hour and I also supported Max on his first prototypes.
  • FabScan (DIY 3D Scanner).
    The project shows how 3D scanning is working and I also designed the Arduino FabScan Shield in 2012.
