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.)

Some basic instructions/ramblings to get started (as the documentation for the Domino module isn't currently complete)
To connect your Domino to a WiFi network using a GUI:
Here is a tap I created for the Raspberry Pi to allow access to the header pins even though it may be blocked by a "Pi Plate" / Shield that is using the header without pass-through pinheaders.
I recently purchased a WS2811 RGB LED strip for PC case modding purposes. I will be making an ATMega-based controller for it, so I decided to use an Arduino for testing and prototyping.
I found two libraries capable of driving this strip:
The DFRobot LCD Keypad Shield is found at DFRobot.com and various other retailers (Robotshop, etc)
To use this shield with the LiquidCrystal library, use this define:
Conversing with your Laser Printer:(See disclaimer below)
To extract information from your printer in PJL telnet to its IP address, port 9100 (or by serial, see below), and send it these commands:

Then copy and paste the following commands:
The Kenwood KDC-MP528 has the following goodies inside:
This is a 4-cell battery; before opening it up, I was under the impression that it was a 3-cell.
The charge controller circuit board has "LIP8198" and "1-867-277-11" markings in the silkscreen, along with a strip of Kapton tape over the top of the PCB.
I found 3 or 4 of these at a garage sale a few years ago for a few bucks, and I am (surprisingly) just cracking them open now.
On the front, it is marked as D-Link DWL-120 11Mbps Wireless USB Adapter, on the back is FCC ID# MXF-WL280, H/W: B2, F/W: 2.25
On the bottom of the PCB, we have the following chips:
This is a nice item that I found today at Princess Auto... A grey box hiding on the bottom of a grey shelf. The phrase "Demo Kit" caught my eye, and I had to take a peek inside. I was blown away by the beautiful innards, and I just had to have it.
