MSP430 Ultra-Low-Power MCUs eZ430-F2013 Development Tool kam in einer DVD-Box. Hier Bilder von der Box von aussen und innen.
http://www.gameboysandrobots.com/2006/10/the_start_of_the_robot_swarm_a_1.html zeigt den Aufbau von 34$ Robotern mit dem ATmega168 mikrocontroller. Interessante Ideen für eigene Projekte. Wo ist eigentlich mein Asuro ?
“ Parallax’s Basic Stamp is the mainstay for hobbyists wanting to add intelligence to everyday devices. A new system called Arduino provides the benefits of the Basic Stamp at a greatly reduced cost, increased speed, and is entirely open-source.
Getting to the “Hello World” of microcontroller projects, the blinking LED, on Arduino costs $32 compared to the $119 for a Basic Stamp. This is perhaps a little unfair because the Basic Stamp board contains a full bread-boarding space. A similar setup for Arduino would cost about $60, still a 2x savings (and can made cheaper if you want).“
„Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board, and a development environment for writing Arduino software. The Arduino programming language is an implementation of Wiring, itself built on Processing.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.) The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open-source IDE can be downloaded for free.“
