Arduino Kit I Bought
I really got interested in this after seeing Mr Ownership and PvtRyan doing some cool things with it. I have always had an interest with circuitry and electronics, so I thought it was about time I used my knowledge to make some practical applications. I got this entire kit for $100.00 and then an Arduino case for $11.99. Overall I think it's a good buy because of all the components it comes with. The kit includes the Arduino, a DC and servo motor, a connectable LCD screen, a small breadboard, the usb connector cable, a nice project tutorial book, and a bunch of smaller components including about 50 resistors of variety resistances, different colored LEDs, 5 rectifying diodes, a piezo, a variety of different switches, 4 of 3 different types of capacitors, some transistors, a temperature sensor, and a couple ICs. I got this kit Saturday and I've been having a blast with it since. If you don't at least have an Arduino and have an interest in programming and electronics, I highly recommend you get one because the thing is amazing.
Here's a link to the kit if anybody is interested: http://www.amazon.com/Arduino-Starte...pr_product_top

That's nice man, my brother in law gave me his arduino kit, and also now that I have a new pc build from my parents giving me their tower then I can do an arduino setup on my laptop, I see chum went from coding wii, to programming microcontrollers, if you need any help man, feel free to PM/VM me, also MrOwnership also works with arduinos and has a rasberry pi. I hope to see some awesome setups man. If you decide to do wii stuff here is the nunchuk and classic setups.

Sick stuff man, Arduino is radical. I always loved making robots with them for classes.

The Rasberry Pi. my teacher is hopefully getting a whole mess of rasberry pi's so I may be getting one as a graduation present.

Nice, you will enjoy messing around with the kit. Here are a tutorial page I found useful when I started programming with Arduino, just to get familiar with how it works. http://learn.adafruit.com/category/learn-arduino

Kinda interested in this, might need to think of picking one up. Anyways good luck with it man.
