plenty possible add on Modules (for many specific tasks, such as Network, Robotics etc.).
Controlled by itself, autonomous mode (external control via VCP, serial communication).
Price here, for a Uno/Clone: 15 - 25 US$/piece (completely assembled/soldered board).
There are even special sets available, for educational purposes.
Thanks, noted! :-)
