DIY shield for Arduino! Think you can do better? Design your own shield on the cheap with this DIY parts kit. You get a 3.2″ x 2.5″ (~ 8.1cm x 6.3cm) single-sided phenolic board with copper solder pads and mounting holes and a extra-special stacky header set. This one has one magical 8-pin header that has been bent so that you can plug it into the ‘not-quite-0.1″-spacing” arduino headers. Solder it any which way you want, lots of room for hacking! Get one in the Adafruit store, only $6.00 !


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Haven’t bought it, but thank you this is awesome! Nice price too.

  2. Nice! Brilliant idea, too late for my order. next time 🙂
    Did you make a magic 8 bin header bending jig?

  3. Can you make the bent pins available separate from the straight pins and perfboard?

  4. Why don’t they just make an arduino that plugs into a breadboard? Oh… wait right, that’s just an atmega168 on a breadboard. Hey Ladyada you should make a breadboard adapter for your AVR programmer. I already made mine but maybe you could include it with future tinyisp units. Thanks once again for helping me get my bootstraps on and for your budget USB AVR programmer.
