    Alas, it looks like it was the previous version. I ordered on 10/3/12 and paid the same amount as for this kit. Has the kit been changed since then? The case looks a whole lot nicer too. Unfortunately, I just paid $50+ to have the new SIK Guide printed atthe local copy shop. Nuts!

    I just received my SIK. Unfortunately, the SIK Guide shipped is not the one pictured. The pictured guide provides very clear Fritzing diagrams and is eighty pages long. The one that I got has drawings of the breadboard/Arduino combination at an oblique angle that I find very hard to follow. [I do realize that I can print out the pdf file of the better guide, but however I do it, that’s going to cost me extra when I thought I was getting it in the kit.] I also agree with the previous commenter that the clear breadboard could be improved upon. I agree with also that overall I am a SparkFun fan.

    Two thoughts for beginner idea concepts, demonstrating how to incorporate transistors into a project so mini-processing units can drive devices with higher power requirements and, so closely related it’s only a refinement of the initial idea, demonstrate how to control motors with mini-processing units. Thanks for doing your roundtable concept. I’m looking forward to it.
