From the MAKE store:

  • Modular, programmable controller boards, the MAKE Controller kit! It is an absolute delight to program, and connecting real devices to it is very simple. Wide-ranging fields have been revolutionized — or even made possible — by microcontrollers, including industrial robotics, automotive engineering, special F/X, irrigation, interactive exhibits, motor control, and all kinds of research. For a long time these powerful chips, and the tools required to use them, were so specialized that few people could explore their potential without a formal background in electronics and software engineering – Get one at the MAKE store – Link.
