Some interesting things that I have found…

The Make magazine (or Makezine) blog page http://www.makezine.com/blog/ worth looking at as it has lots of crazy and cool things to spend your time attempting…

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories – http://www.evilmadscientist.com a nice site with more crazy things to spend your time doing…

And finally, for today… I was originally lookingat investing in a Basic Stamp 2 board and development thingy that enabled me to program small robot like things and so on, but as that was extortionally priced, I have now found an alternative, the Arduino. It is a cheaper board $32 as opposed to $119 and for the actual chip, $4 as opposed to $50, so definitely more worthwhile investing in. It is also open source, so it would be much better too, as it also runs natively on Mac (including Intel Mac I am led to believe) but if you’re remotely interested, check it out… http://todbot.com/blog/2006/09/25/arduino-the-basic-stamp-killer/ for a simple independant overview and here for the main site… http://www.arduino.cc/

Enjoy!
