Absolutely Amazing !
By Thomas D. Walker
Old men's toys don't have to be expensive but they do have to be awesome and thought provoking. The Arduino Uno is all that and more.
My last foray into electronics was when the telegraph was a new-fangled contraption and my last programming languages were Fortran and Cobol so I was a bit intimidated and not sure whether I should check out this Arduino-thingy.
I got the Uno and a couple of very basic books and, over the course of a couple of weeks, I acquired a couple of servos, which I modified to make continuous rotation, a Ping Ultrasonic sensor and very soon had a small two-wheeled robot running around the floor driving my hound dog crazy. The Uno makes controlling the servos and the ultrasonic sensor a snap even for a 65-year old. I have a long list of future projects to try out and components to find and have taken over half of the dining room table (much to my wife's chagrin). I recommend the Arduino for anyone who has a desire to make things go bump in the night. Thank you for an excellent product.
I can also recommend "Arduino Cookbook" by Michael Margolis, an excellent book.

This is a good deal. The price I purchased it at was what others were selling just the UNO for. The board that was delivered to me was the current Rev2 board (not the old one pictured). I was hoping for this, so I was pleased. (You may not receive the same results.) You can't wire everything up right on the arduino, so the little bread board is nice to have. For small circuit work, it won't take up so much space. There are a good number of the jumper wires and they have nice little easy to handle ends on them. Plus you get the USB cable. Others don't send you a USB cable and not many people have one with those square ended ones laying around.

This is a very nice kit. For me, this has been much fun; in my job, I 'bring up' new micro-controllers (a very low-level task).
In my opinion the folks putting together the Ardruino have done an excellent job putting together 'input/output' operations, letting folks focus on 'algorithms'. Without the asistance, it can take many hours to bring a kit like this up to a rudementary monitor, let alone launch what I feel is a good basic SDK.
Many thanks to the folks on the Arduino team!
I would recommend this package to anyone wanting to learn about micro-controllers, tasking, interrupts and such. You can still write low-level device drivers if that's your thing.
This is a handy bundle of 6 items to get you started right away in the world of Newsite. The bundle includes: Newsite Uno R3 (DIP Version), 400 hole breadboard, jumper wires, breadboard and Newsite holder, USB cable and 9V battery connector. The Newsite Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started. The Uno differs from all preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB-to-serial driver chip. Instead, it features the Atmega8U2 programmed as a USB-to-serial converter
