I found a link a year or so ago for a micro-controller platform called Arduino. I wanted to get it for a while but never pulled the trigger. For Valentines Day my wife got it for me. Since then I been tinkering with it and have found it a great beginners platform to getting into electronics. My current projects are a interactive teddy bear and the ultimate weather clock. When you get to the point where you want to integrate the micro-controller into your project you can buy $4 chips instead of the $30 board.
