I am just trying to to figure out what this is called.

Electronic Components

What I am referring to in this picture is the white board with all of the connectors and the led light attached. I am trying to purchase one but I have no idea what they are called.

    \$\begingroup\$ But don't get a mini until you've figured out how to use the ones with rails properly first. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 27, 2014 at 20:13

    \$\begingroup\$ It is called "missing current limiting resistor". It kills your Arduino if you keep doing it that way. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @jippie: Maybe its one of those 5mm LEDs with internal resistor. \$\endgroup\$

That is a Breadboard. It's hooked up to an Arduino.

search for a "breadboard" or "solderless breadboard" and you should be able to find it.
