Danger Shield

I just finished building this shield kit for the Arduino microcontroller physical computing platform. Shields are extenders for the basic controller board that sit on top. They often add one or two cool features, such as ethernet, stepper motor outputs, GPS, and so on. This one is totally nuts, it adds:

  • three sliders with lighted handles,
  • three buttons,
  • temperature sensor,
  • piezo buzzer,
  • piezo knock sensor,
  • light sensor,
  • two LEDs (and a third for power indication) and,
  • a seven segment LED.
