The Virtual Shields for Arduino application enables developers and makers to use a Windows 10 device as a sensor shield for their Arduino board. An Arduino sketch can now make use of any of the sensor and actuator assets of a Windows device - this includes touch screens, cameras, and even speech recognition with Cortana. Connection between the Arduino and Windows device can be established via Bluetooth, USB, or Wi-Fi.
With these tools, the Virtual Shields for Arduino application is fast and easy way to build projects on an Arduino board. Follow our tutorials at http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/GetStarted.htm to get started.
