I am thinking about producing one of my prototypes, the Adafruit Sensor Shield. It allows the easy integration of Adafruit’s MicroSD breakout board and one of their accelerometer breakout boards to their Arduino. If enough people are interested I would start a project on Tindie or Kickstarter. I’m thinking a PCB only price of $6-$10, depending on how many are interested, PCB manufacturer, etc.
The final design has the traces re routed to remove all the right angles, ground plain added, moved the TMP36 to shorten traces, etc. The new boards are being manufactured and I will post the pics when I get them, should be in a week or two.
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.
