Project “Clipboard” from the Forums #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Here’s a simple, handy “Project Clipboard” for working with the Raspberry Pi from Lob0426 that gives him plenty of space to work on what he needs, from the Adafruit Forums:
Decided to build a project board for the Raspberry Pi. I looked at the Pi Dish but it looked too small for what I wanted. I picked up a clear blue acrylic clipboard from Wal-Mart. Next was a Board edge mounting kit, then a T-Cobbler and a breadboard wire bundle. I already had a half breadboard and a full breadboard here. Throw in a a rev 1.0 RasPi and the project is now complete!
Plenty of room to work and the T-Cobbler reaches either board. The “clip” makes a handy place to keep the extra wires from the bundle. Might add a sectioned box to hold parts to it next!

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.
