The Arduino Dev Board [Sticky]

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.)

Breadboards and Un-Etched PCBs

Breadboards and Un-Etched PCBs

While at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I picked up a bunch of breadboards and unetched PCBs from a goodie-bag dealer (one with little bags of misc parts for a set price).

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.
