We have recently made our low-cost starter sets available with your choice of many different Arduino-compatible processor boards.
This shows the Low-Cost Starter Set with a "YourDuinoRobo1" which is our new Arduino-compatible with added features, and photos of the cable capabilities for connecting to relays and other devices (not included).
We have excellent How-To information for new users to get started with Arduino and these Input and Output Devices here: http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/StarterSetMenu
The set includes:
5 - Big push-button switches [Digital Input]
2 - 10K Potentiometers that fit breadboard well [Analog Input]
5 - 10K PhotoResistors (Light sensors) [Analog Input]
1 - Digital temperature sensor DS18B20 [Digital Signal Input]
10 - LEDs of 5 different colors, plus 220 ohm resistors [Digital or Analog Output]
1 - Red-Green-Blue Multicolor LED [Digital or Analog Output]
1 - Buzzer Module (makes sound with voltage applied) [Digital Output]
1 - Beeper Module (Makes different sounds/tones with Arduino TONE Library) [Analog Output]
1 - Servo Motor (Mechanical positioning from digital pulses] [Digital Signal Output]
2 - 3-pin cables to 3-pin connectors that fit the Robo1 and various Electronic Bricks etc.
2 - 3-pin cable to separate wire ends that connect the Robo1 to any device
1 - 40 wide flat rainbow color cable that can be separated to make many different cables
2 - 40 pin strips that can be separated to connect cables to breadboard and other devices
10 - each 220 ohm resistors (LED current limit etc.) and 10K resistors (switch pullups etc.)
1 - 8cm high-quality Breadboard with power and ground strips
You can get this set of parts alone for $15 or add your choice of Arduino-Compatible boards at reduced prices.

The YourDuinoRobo1 is an upgraded Arduino Duemilanove-compatible board with added features:
- ATMEL 328 processor can be run on either 5.0 or 3.3V for compatibility with new sensors and devices
- LED placement is more ergonomic: can be seen easily when a shield is used
- Built-in Sensor Shield connectors for 6 Servos or other Digital or PWM applications, and 6 Analog inputs
- 5 free 3-pin cables with flat end to Robo1 and latched end to Electronic Bricks
- 5 free 3-pin cables with flat end to Robo1 and separate ends to connect to relay boards, many other devices
- Free USB Cable
- Additional Power and Ground pins, space for large capacitor if desired
- Improved 3.3V power regulator provides up to 500ma
