I've been visiting Radio Shack stores since I started dinking around with electronics in high school in the 80's. I'm not affiliated with them, but I've always been a loyal customer. Though I've heard many hobbyists dis them over the years, at least they've always had components on the shelves.
Propeller boards, Arduino boards, Make kits, gyros, GPS, and on and on. Radio Shack is carrying a lot of really great hobbyist/roboticist/maker/electronics nerd gear. Go check it out.
But nothing like this!
|Arduino and Parallax gear including a Propeller board!|
|The venerable Forest Mims III books are back and better than|
ever along with other promising titles
|I almost missed this entire endcap of Arduino, |
Make and Parallax goodies
Never have I been so excited to visit a Radio Shack since the days of blue Archer packages and speech chips hanging by the dozens.
Radio Shack has been saying recently that they're committed to DIYers. If this doesn't convince you, nothing will.
