What would you recommend for an Arduino starter kit?
I have €60 =~ $79 / £50 to spend on an arduino and stuff to use with it as an introduction to electronics. I've looked around at other starter kits and so far, I plan to get:
An arduino Deumillanove,
a few piezo elements,
5 x blue, 5x red, 5 x green LEDs,
2 x RGB LEDs.
LOGIC, SHIFT REGISTER 8-BIT, 16DIP (how many of these will I need)
So far that costs about €50 from ie.farnell.com. Are there any better places to buy from in Ireland?
I have some motors with gear boxes and potentiometers that I used for school projects which I can recycle.
I know that I'll need resistors but I don't know how many of which resistances.
Is there anything else like sensors etc. that I might need or you think would be fun or good to learn with? I dont mind extending the budget if I have to.
Thanks a lot in advance :D
