So you're interested in Arduino, or hacking the Kinect, or building a 3D printer, or making your own robots — but where do you start? What parts are essential, and which are just nice to have? And how do you organize it all? Dale Wheat , the author of Arduino Internals, will show you how to build your own electronics lab complete with tools, parts, and power sources. You'll learn how to create a portable lab, a small lab to save space, and even a lab for small groups and classrooms. You'll learn which parts and tools are indispensable no matter what type projects you're working on: which soldering irons are best, which tools, cables, and testing equipment you'll need.
