Multimeter

Hello,

So I am getting more and more into robotics and I want to be best equipped with tools to build robots. I have heard about multimeters and I was wondering if there is a specfic type that is best for electronics/robotics and what fetures I might need/not need.

 

Thanks,

Parts for Line following robot

I was thinking of ideas for my second robot and I thought that a line following robot would be good. So I want to build an arduino line following robot. I was wondering what parts I would need to follow the black line. Also I am still decieding wether I want to build a small chasise, similar to the 3pi robot, or buy a ready made one.

Xbox 360 parts?

I have the opportunity to have an old, maybe broken, xbox 360 pro from my brother. I 'm first going to see if I can fix it. But if I can't, I was wondering if there is anything I could use for a robot? I know there probably isn't, but hey what the heck. I thought I might ask. 

Thanks

New parts

Hello everyone, 

So I took the quiz on free day over at Sparkfun.com . After about an hour of answering a questions in between re-loading pages, I finally answered to questions correctly before it was all over. So I got $20 worth of parts. So I didn't know what to buy so I bought some random parts for fun. I ordered these products:

Arduino, holding wires in without soldering?

So I am building/ working on my robot, http://letsmakerobots.com/node/24204 and I didn't want to solder the wires into my arduino. Whenever I moved robot, the wires come out of the pins. Currently I am using scotch tape, I know not very professional. I was wondering if there is any other way to keep the wires from coming out?

 

Thanks
