For those of you that want some additional reading and help with electronics, the renowned artist Ken Rinaldo has spent years assembling this guide:  Interactive Electronics for Artists and Inventors

It is online, free, and uses Maxuino extensively as it covers how to wire up and operate things from servos to LEDs to cams. It also has sections dedicated to resource lists detailing places to buy electronics, festivals to see great work, and much more.

A great resource not to be missed!
