I just assembled my newly-arrived Bare-Bones Arduino clone, developed by Paul Badger. How great! Not only is it perfect for embedding in projects, but the instructions Paul made to go along with it make it so easy. I wish I had a teacher like him when I was learning the basics of physical computing! I used double-male header pins (graciously given by Mr. Badger) for the digital i/o so that I can plug the BBB into a solderless breadboard or plug stuff in on top. I have three more kits to assemble. This board is much easier to deal with than the NG (that communications chip is really hard to solder), and the Atmegas come pre-bootloaded. The development of this board is a case in point for why open source hardware rocks. Thanks, Paul!

    If you reverse the header pins on the bottom, and the 5v GND pins on the right, you wouldnt have needed a cable to plug it into your breadboard :-) It was designed to pug right into the top power rail and also plug into the rest of a breadboard at the same time.

    Actually, they’re double male headers; they extend both above and below the board so I can plug them into a breadboard. See this flickr photo of the bottom of the board:

    There are several articles about the Bare-Bones Ardunio at the following link. Including details about how you can get a kit in exchange for a short article.

    Ah. I see now…..

    They should put those in the kit!
