The first load of hardware is in! The Raspberry Pi starter kit: complete with Pi B+, case, HDMI cable, AC adapter, micro SD card (8GB) and heat sinks. I assembled this tonight (no pics because I’m lazy).
The Arduino Uno starter kit: And Uno Rev3 (I think?), small breadboard, USB cable, D battery adapter, and a bunch of jumper wires.
And two wireless transceivers. The transceivers are compatible with the uno, but I have an Arduino mini on the way that I’m hoping it will be compatible with. The minis are far cheaper than the unos… About $5, vs $15. Plus the minis are, well, small.
I’ll start playing with the Pi tomorrow and let you know how the projects go!
