I know a young man who will be a first year undergrad in electrical engineering in the fall of 2009. I'd like to get him a birthday present that he would actually find useful at Cal Poly. He loves building circuits, loves robotics, loves building things in general. I've given him the best multi-function VOM I could find, and I can't afford a good oscilloscope. I'm leaning toward software, but I'm open to any great ideas. I'd especially like to hear from current EE students at CPSLO. Thanks!
