  • Motor Shield Kit for Arduino v2
    Works
    Review by Mitchell
    Used to replace the older adyfruit motor shield that I fried a few months ago. Needed different libraries, drivers, etc... but I eventually got it to work. Works like a charm.

  • NeoPixel RGB LED Matrix for Arduino
    Very bright and easy to use ...
    Review by Claude
    NeoPixel RGB LED Matrix Arduino shield is easy to use and are very bright. The kit board is clearly marked and soldered together nicely with help from the Adafruit online instructions. Because power and data connectors are well indicated on these boards you can use the NeoPixel shields unconnected from the Arduino. You can daisy-chain more boards together to form a larger panel display. You will have to supply a high current 5 VDC to this shield to get full brightness. Now waiting the spots in my vision go away!

  • XBee Shield for Arduino
    Amazing Product, just be careful.
    Review by Thushanth
    Amazing module to integrate Xbee onto arduino and you can use the Analog IN ports like usual with the xbee shield. Just be careful how you carry the board. The pins are easy to bend both lower and upper.

Meet the DFRobotShop Omni Rover

Posted on August 14, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits.

Most three and four wheel drive omnidirectional robots cost $500 and up and are usually intended for the research rather than the hobbyist market. For those who have the knowledge to design and build their own omniwheel driven robot, matching all the parts can be a daunting task: finding the right motors, sourcing the wheels, [...]
