One of the cool things about the Arduino is that you can add shields to it to make it do whatever you want it to do. But sometimes you just run out of room. And I don’t feel like swapping in my OLED touchscreen with my Zigbee and my Lithium Backpack. So how do you get everything you want, all at the same time?
Enter the ExtenderShield. Plug in an Arduino to the underside and it replicates all of the pins in two locations. The pin replicators keep everything connected. Talk about modular design…this makes it happen!
And just like Apple’s original small, annoying little iPod’s that looked like candy, and didn’t work with Linux, the ExtenderShields now come in a handful of colors, to spruce up Arduino gadget circuits (except these work with Linux too by default, since they don’t have any electronics in them and don’t need drivers that take a year to code and when they finally come out I bought a new laptop anyway and it didn’t matter but I’m not angry)!
