I’m apprehensive as to what to post here, but super excited to be getting my hands dirty with the arduino. I’ve just researched so many fascinating projects, everything is so new and amazing to me. I’m planning on developing my arduino research through some iPhone programming, and I’ll try to share up a bit of both as I go along.
I will mention that I immediately rushed down to the NYU Computer Store today after finding out that they sold arduino boards. It’s the only place in the city that I’ve been able to find so far. They really have a great selection of parts and reference material at good prices. The guy helping me even gave me a list of packages they offer from the “Basic Tool Kit” to the “Basic Parts Kit” which includes an arduino and all the bits you would need for a long time, including various resistors, LEDs, semiconductors, capacitors, and switches.
Finally, I did pick up two reads while there:
