Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board, and a development environment for writing Arduino software.
Arduino can be used to develop interactive objects, taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors, and controlling a variety of lights, motors, and other outputs. Arduino projects can be stand-alone, or they can be communicate with software running on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP.)

Woo! I got my contest kit for the Microchip 16-bit Embedded Design Contest.
I recently bought two Nokia LCDs from eBay seller talktalkmobiles, and each came with a free Torx-8 screwdriver.
The screens come from Nokia 3310, 3330 and 3390, and have built-in Philips PCD8544 controllers.
Ok, so.. Long story short, our Canadian Tire had a $30 Eliminator 1.8W solar panel on sale for $10 this week.
