They're about 26-30 bucks from Roboshop.ca. Then some shipping.


Or about 20 bucks with shipping from China.

ArtEngine has a couple of them so you could try one out during the ModLab
open house events that are every other Wednesday. All you need is a computer
with a USB port to send the programs to it. Well it helps to have little
lights, switches and stuff to connect to it. Or some servos or motors. You
can run a couple of servos directly off it I think (without adding an extra
power supply). Well I've done that and it didn't go up in smoke.

I have one of the ArtEngine arduinos installed on a Community Drawbot that I
made. So people can try their hand at moving some stepper motors and making
a picture. http://mambohead.com/category/drawbot-2/

I've already got another drawbot running. Baby drawbot very small and can be
toted around. So I can do a meetup anytime for some arduino hacking with the
drawbot.  I'm just installing a limit switch on it so it can calibrate
