  1. I have been meaning to start on my first Arduino project this month to make a wireless 4×17 RGB LED clock and ticker. Good luck, everyone!

  2. Ok, this one has serious drool factor.  Seems like a perfect combination – been looking for a good kit to get myself and my son started on our Arduino projects we want to do.

  3. If selected, I will use this to solve world hunger, create world peace and fix the economy……or at the very least have some fun with it.

  4. Me too. Me too…. I’ve been really wanting to get into Arduino and this would be great.  Notifier for when my clothes are done washing, automatic litter box.  Too much fun!

  5. Duis at lorem ac dui tristique dapibus in ac dolor. Suspendisse at libero ante, vel hendrerit ipsum. Etiam ut nibh sit amet purus convallis condimentum. Sed justo nunc, aliquet ac imperdiet id, volutpat sit amet quam. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Suspendisse potenti. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Vivamus vel imperdiet nisl. Integer laoreet faucibus ultricies. Etiam venenatis odio eu quam cursus at sagittis libero consequat. Proin imperdiet iaculis diam, nec scelerisque urna vestibulum vel. Sed interdum nisi in eros scelerisque feugiat. Quisque adipiscing leo at nisi euismod sodales. Ut et tortor lorem. Sed dapibus dui egestas dui tincidunt sodales. Sed a enim vitae est tincidunt condimentum.

  6. If I don’t get this hopefully I will get my second favorite thing – Peace on earth.  (No pressure) Happy Holidays

  7. With just a few extra pieces, I could turn this into a giant, rampaging, Godzilla monster! But that would be socially irresponsible.

  8. I would need an intro to arduino book to go with this, but definitely something I’m interested in! Please enter me.

  9. This would be great!. I’ve been out of practice for far too long and this would be a great way to get back into hacking/making. :-)
