Although, do you already have a programmer, and a snap connector for the 9V battery?
http://www.circuitgizmos.com/products/cgsorkit1/cgsorkit1.shtmlDescription from the site:The Society of Robots has a great beginner robot tutorial called the "Step-by-Step Robot Tutorial under $50". "Ever wanted to build your own robot but didn't know where to start? Here is your chance! I will outline step by step exactly what to do to build a robot for under $50." The robot tutorial guides the first-time builder through construction of a low-cost robot. The tutorial describes the electrical and mechanical systems of this low-cost robot.The CGSORKIT1 contains the electronic parts for the $50 robot (except for the servos) all collected in an easy-to-purchase pack. No more wondering if the parts that you selected are right for the $50 Society of Robots tutorial. There are several benefits to buying this kit. First, you save some money over getting the parts all by themselves. Second, this kit contains more than the bare minimum for the $50 robot tutorial - wire, solder, LEDs, extra resistors. Third, the CdS cells are matched to each other - no guessing which ones are the same in the surplus set from Radio Shack.Fourth, the ATmega8 AVR microcontgroller comes programmed with the Arduino bootloader, if you choose to develop with that environment. And, even if you don't, having that bootloader in the chip helps with debugging as the bootloader will blink PB.5 on power-up.Kit Item QuantityPrinted Circuit Board 1ATmega8 AVR, DIP package 1Socket for ATmega8 1CdS Photoresistors (matching) 25V Linear Regulator 1Red LED 5Green LED 5Yellow LED 51.62 k ohm Resistor 8330 ohm Resistor 830 position single in-line header 3220 uF Capacitor 1.1 uF Capacitor 33 position crimp header 3Crimp pins 10Lead-free Solder 36 inchesMisc wire, 24 gauge, solid 20 feetThe CGSORKIT1 does NOT include the two HS-311 servos.
