Installing the Bean software for the first time?

You'll need to follow some special instructions to get started.

The Bean loader app for OS X relies on the Arduino IDE to compile your Arduino sketches and program the Bean. To install the app on OS X, follow these steps:

  1. Download the Arduino software, extract and install.
  2. Download the Bean Loader for OSX below and install.

The Bean can also be programmed (and updated) directly from iOS!
