Wer'e about to order our first Arduino kit. We will hook it up to the TI-99.

 

                                                                           WARNING:

 

                              Be careful about ordering.People have made clones of Arduino!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BE CAREFUL!

 

 

 

 

Be careful about the Arduino.Even if you order a clone,I hear that clones work better then genuine.

 

 

 

                                                                       Good luck!

Hey, Buck... Arduino is Open Source hardware, so clones are expected!! Encouraged, even. Open Source means that the designs and such are available to everyone, so you can even make your own Arduino with a breadboard!!!

But you are right... There are probably some crappy, poorly-made knock-offs out there. :)

I have this kit and it's a great starter. Go for it.

Well, all our items have shipped. We bought the starter kit, some additional LEDs, resistors, jumpers, etc..

Got a $60 gift card for my birthday earlier this week and we dumped it all on these items.

Buck is waiting on pins and needles for the arrival. :)
