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. :)

I made my own arduino on bread board as part of a stereo tremolo guitar pedal that I am working on. Will send a picture on Monday.

The main part of the kit came in today. We got two Arduinos, an UNO and a MEGA. Also came with all the extras we will need starting out--and many we will likely never need.

Going to get started tonight... The boy is overjoyed at the moment.

The code is probably inefficient and sloppy, but it worked. :)

Thanks Vorticon. He could not go to sleep tonight because he just wanted to keep going and going. He is an amazing kid, and I envy his youth and enthusiasm.

Here is the program he modified to flash to a tune... all him, all I did was suggest duration values to give the best effect.

Is this your BP? That's pretty high I would say if it is, so better get this checked out...

No its beats per minute on a guitar tremolo effect!

Ah good! I saw BPM and DEP (diastolic end pressure) and instinctively went into medical mode  :grin:
