After hitting a few stores getting bits and pieces i thought this warranted its own thread instead of buried in some other Radioshack clearance thread.

This is a nationwide clearance, a lot of the stores have incorrect prices on the floor but they will all ring up as follows:

Q. what is arduino and why do I want one?

A. Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer. It's an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board.

better A. The Arduino platform lies somewhere between Technic Lego and the low level geek world of circuit building. It consists of two parts; the hardware and the software, and with these you can build almost anything, from a simple flashing light to a box of tricks that sends you a Twitter message when your houseplants get thirsty.

the actual arduinos aren't clearanced. these are all add ons. also, their LED, capacitor, switch, and resistor kits are on clearance for $5-8 bucks.

Neither the Ethernet Shield nor the Motor Shield are in stock around me (or maybe they are and I should go see for myself?). But I could use a couple Proto Shields. Thanks OP!

wonder if they are the ones in the red and clear compartmentalized bins they have full of sorted components. the msrp was crazy but i had a feeling those were marked down too... didnt check!
