Parts arrived yesterday

The most integral/ hardest to get parts for an initial stab at microcontroller-ing by yours truly arrived yesterday. The chip I am going to use is an Atmel ATMega8-16-PI. As you can see, the 28 pin socket fits very nicely on an appropriate place on a breadboard.

Hopefully, through the use of these chips, a very cheap way of getting data from the real world (in the form of musical controllers with continuos, analog sensors as well as on/off toggle-like ones) into Max/MSP via the HI object (also like a gamepad etc) will be possible.
