Let's Make Robots!

Adafruit and SuperDroid Robots!

I ordered Arduino Duemilanove, motor shield, usb and breadboard from Adafruit; Wheel track and motor from SuperDroid Robot. I can't wait for them to arrive!!! Does anyone know how long it takes to arrive? I live on the west coast by the way :)! I hope they come Friday or Saturday!!

Hmm...picaxe or adruino...

Hey guys,  I've been lurking around this forum and read a LOT of info on building robots! (Been digging up old posts @_@) I've noticed that Arduino uses C (?) as the language. I have experience in C++ and currently taking C++ courses at the moment (CS major :) ) Would Arduino be a better choice for me? I wanted to get the Bare Bones Board but I'm afraid I might do something wrong in the soldering process. I found the Arduino Starter kit: http://www.adafruit.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=68
