  1. WOW. I got one a year ago for $100, it was an incredible deal then. Whichever microcontroller you grow up into (AVR for me!), this set puts together everything you’ll need to know. The “manual” runs as a well paced and engaging class course.

  2. yeah, I remember seeing these in radioshack i work at. We carried them for about 4 months after christmas of ’05. then they had all of us radioshacks discontinue and ship them back to our depots.

  3. My son and I are each building a boebot, his is USB, mine is serial. Same thing, essentially. This is the best price I have seen apart from ebay auctions. If you want to learn about microcontrollers, servos, and programing a basic stamp, get this kit.

  4. It’s backordered now, but I just talked to a friendly customer service guy and he said they have stock arriving probably over the weekend, and will start filling orders on Monday.
