electronics experimentation

There are lots of ways to experiment with electronics.  One way is to use a programmable testbed system.  There are several available at various costs.  One that I am looking at that seems interesting is the Arduino UNO, which sells for about $30.   I was shown this one at work by our electronics engineer.   I may get one for myself to play with.  It looks like a very inexpensive way to experiment with programmable electronics.  Such system can be used for data output and display, data collection, motor control, ham radio applications, and much more.

Another programmable testbed system that is quite popular is the Parallax Basic Stamp.
