Mystery Arduino device makes US TV debut on The Following

Looks like Arduino has made it to the small screen!

The Following is an American TV Series which premiered last January and telling the story of former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and his attempts to recapture serial killer Joe Carroll following the latter’s escape from prison.

On the 9th of April Season 1, chapter 12 aired and some of you noticed the unexpected!

An Arduino Uno spotted for the first time in a TV series. At 17m 40s Kevin Bacon jumps over an Arduino Uno-activated device … the red led blinking seems pretty dangerous! But what kind of device is it exactly?
