  • 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!

New Product: Arduino Leonardo

Posted on July 23, 2012

By RB1 & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits.

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 [...]

... to get one of the octa core ODroid XU-E boards, but the $50.00 shipping cost is keeping me from getting one right now. Maybe if I order it with accessories all on the same order, that won't be the case. My two robots have over 5000 lines of Arduino code between them right now, but I am starting ...
