Ok, so here are pictures of embedded controllers and such. Just a snapshot of my hobby embedded environment.
Not shown is my workbench, which gets set up and taken down on the kitchen table as needed. (apartment living!)
This includes soldering station, digital oscilloscope, and tools.
The table top near the desk:
Spark Core, RaspBerryPi, Arduino and so forth. Plus an old-time iPod!
The RaspberryPi runs the home automation system, and is connected to an XBee used for communication with various peripherals. The Arduino is one of those, in development. The Spark Core is my development core, with others already in use around the house.
Arduino stuff, XBee modules, and various shields and parts from Adafruit.
RaspberryPi and Spark Core. Power supplies, and a fairly ancient Radio Shack multimeter.
