Gustin, if you want to control things, then one of the other boards on that
list are a cheaper alternative. The "arduino decimila" costs 38.95 at
For realtime control of robots, the Pololu boards are flexible:
The Orangutan LV-168 and USB programmer is a good value for 79.95
Another board worth looking at, which is more powerful, is the AVR-LIP (Lab
in a Pocket).
I have the arduino, which I using to learn development with this line of
microcontrollers. Its hardware and software development environment are
completely open source. The tools are all based around GCC, even the
commercial ones. I am just using them (avr-gcc, avr-libc, etc.) from Linux
- that way I am not laying out money for compilers.
