    Hello folks,
    Could you give me some help on what to buy Arduino?
    I want to make a LED cube 8x8x8 (or at least try) simple thing hehe
    I took a look in the shop
    http://www.usinainfo.com.br/arduino-original-italia-371

    Ja can tell me if someone already bought and if it is reliable
    Researched in some places and it seems that is, but whatever.

    What Arduino buy?

    Where are you from?

    I would suggest getting the Mega 2560, it has many more inputs/outputs than the Leonardo, and the only thing that you are "losing" is the keyboard/mouse functionality of the Leonardo.

    I'm from Brazil, but I prefer to attend international forums, this supporting technology of Brazil is still very precarious...
    and thanks for the tip...

    For similar price you could get a Raspberry PI that runs Linux and can connect to a keyboard, HD screen and has a bus for your own developments. There are also many projects on the web for the Pi.

    I currently own two of the darn things.
    You can program them barebones, or slap on a Linux distro.
    You have control over the GPIO in both methods, but the Linux distro method has more overhead ;)
    Of course... updating the program from a remote shell is always appealing to me.
