Has anyone heard of Arduino? I saw it MAKE magazine, then ended up discovering this board...I love the Wiring language, but has anyone played with an Arduino board yet? Pre-assembled, only about $31.00 (USD). The biggest hurdle I have with the Wiring board is getting one, haha....just looking to open up the conversation here, does anyone have an Arduino board, and if so, is it any better or worse than the Wiring I/O board?

Yes we have heard of it Smiley, here you can find some comparison between the hardware http://wiring.org.co/ioboard/compare.html and some notes are also available in the forum regarding both. http://wiring.org.co/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?num=1162529023 Also check the Arduino forum http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl there are notes about both platforms.
You can also get Wiring from Sparkfun (they tax it a little bit). A Wiring board costs US$60.00 fully assembled and ready to use.

Nice, clearly the Wiring platform is a winner...but on SparkFun it actually costs $79.00 Sad I could buy three Arduino boards with that amount. On top of that the item on SparkFun is out of stock. Well this is gonna be on my Christmas list for sure Wink Thanks for the reply.

Yes, they tax the board a little bit, but you can get it from us directly for US$60.
Actually we all ran out of stock, we had an unexpected demand of boards from 2 weeks ago, but 500 are going to be ready by the end of next week.
I'll let you know.
Best, H.

barragan, I sent you email at hbarragan@uniandes.edu.co from my gmail account about a week ago on purchasing a Wiring board but haven't got any reply yet. Sad

So can I buy a board after the next week?
