Today’s project was to assemble an Arduino Proto Shield kit. I received this as part of an Arduino Projects Pack, which was given to me as a well meant gift that I somehow never got around to enjoying in a politely conspicuous manner. I thought today would be as good of a day as any to break into the pack.
The Projects Pack contained, in addition to the Proto Shield kit (fully assembled, at right), an assortment of electronic goodies , jumper wires, a small breadboard, two extra proto boards, and best of all, an Arduino Uno (at left).
Now I’ve got to learn how to program this thing!
