Hi Matt,

I do not think that the MINDS-i Sensor/Uno/Shield kit is worth the $250 that they are charging. I ordered just the Uno/Shield ($80) and they messed up and set me the complete kit. They charge ~$39 for Parallax PINGs that Parallax sells for less than ~$25 when you buy four. First, I would see how effective the Sharp IR sensor is with the AMP along with some improved code that may come along soon. You can buy a Uno, a servo shield, and three PINGs for a lot less than ~$250!

Just a thought.

Regards,

TCIII
