    Default 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.

    You could hook up the motor, waterproof the terminals, and throw it in a liquid. So yes, yes it does blend.

    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.

    Hey once you feel you have masterminded the arduino, your next step young jedi is 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
