Just Ordered: Arduino Starter Kit from SparkFun

I have been reading through the book Programming Interactivity and am finally ready to get started with some projects. I will be starting with an Arduino Starter Kit from

This should be a good solid entry into computer based robotics. Once I have tackled some of the basics with Arduino, I look forward to branching out and covering some other topics.

One of my initial goals is to connect to the internet from my projects so that I can log data to a SQL database and control the devices from a web application. Although I won’t be able to do that yet with the starter kit, there are some add ons that should allow me to extend the starter kit as needed.

Now to wait for the kit to get here.
