Taylor's Do it

Strange thing I found in the Taylor's Do it in Virginia Beach.

Anybody know this company? Have you tried it? Please share your comments.

I have recently purchased a Vilros Ultimate Starter Kit for ARDUINO (great purchase, by the way).  I am very interested in this microcontroller and the possibility of learning, at the same time, electronics and programming. Right now, I have just started and blinked a LED and use a potentiometer to keep it blinking longer or shorter.

But I am already thinking about the future, and my other hobby, Slot Cars...So, I would like to know if anybody has already tinkered with Arduino, doing things for slot cars. I was thinking of building a lap counter with speedometer, but, I still have to learn a lot.

Please share if you already know how to do things with Arduino for slot cars.

Thank you.

The Ministry of Hobby: Getting there

The Ministry of Hobby

At last some good news from Spain. Avant Slot, a spanish slot car maker, has created a new concept of shop/club/running center?. It is called Ministry of Hobby . You have a shop (RC and slot), a big 300" screen to watch live racing events, a small area with vending machines for sodas and coffee, a RC track and three slot tracks. Prices are very competitive (5 Euros per 1 hour in any of the slot tracks, 8 Euros for 2 hours and 11 Euros for all day). It is also very conveniently located between the M40 and the M50, close to the M511 and you can also get there with Metro, from the station Colonia Jardin in Line 10, you take the line to Boadilla and the stop is Ventorro del Cano. The address is Valdemorillo Street in Alcorcon. I will publish some pictures of the place. It is worth it trying. A wonderful place to spend the day racing with friends or with your kids!!!
