  • Terminal Shield for Arduino
    Good overall
    Review by Simon
    Great for cable organization for a final project without a breadboard. Only thing is that it hide the arduino board so you don't see the test LED and some of the pins. I saw terminal like this that comes in two piece wich would have been better in my opinion.

  • DFRobot LCD Keypad Shield for Arduino
    super easy to use, no soldering, bright, great value
    Review by borgchick
    Having this on a Arduino shield makes it so easy to use. Simply put it on your Arduino, and you are ready to use it!

    For example, open the LiquidCrystal HelloWorld example code, change the initial call to liquidcrystal to this:

    LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);

    That's it! Compile and upload, and you are up and running.

    See the documentation here for things like reading the keypad (which also is incredibly simple to use):

By RB1 & filled under RobotShop.

We all love Arduino. This open-source microcontroller is incredibly successful, mainly thanks to the fact that it is powerful, very simple to program, and has allowed the community to develop derivatives and accessories. Recently, there has been a new addition to the Arduino family: the Arduino Leonardo. This new board differs a bit from its predecessors since it uses only one microcontroller (no second serial [...]
