The Arduino web site is probably the best single resource for anyone who has questions about Arduino.

If you don't have one yet I highly recommend the Arduino Experimenters Kit (ARDX). It gets you started with all of the basic things you need to know, and has enough parts to get you started making your own projects. You can get it from either Adafruit or Oomlout, depending on what part of the world you're on.



If you have never done any programming at all the Getting Started With Arduino is a decent start, but don't waste your time and money unless programming a computer scares you to death.

From there the Arduino web site and forums are a great resource and deal with questions from complete beginners all the time.

I really wanted my hand held. So I visited http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/ for a simple, bite-sized tutorial.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.

Tell us what you love.
