The Weburban Olive FTDI breakout board sold in our store was featured in a write-up demonstrating an Arduino variant called “Screwduino” today. The designers comments:
I find most of the Arduino breadboards annoying. They work fine if you don’t know what you want, but are painful when you are ready to really make something. Then, I saw a screw shield and it looked like the ideal solution for loose wires and breadboard frustrations..
The shield me thinking. It’s a great idea, but why add the shield? Why not just take an Arduino design and replace the headers/pins with screw terminals?
