The Robot Builder’s Shield, first batch

I got the first batch! It took 2 days for manufacturing and 12 days shipping. I have to say I did not think I’ll get them so soon!

The boards are excellent quality, very professional. I populated one board right away and plugged it in my brand new original Arduino Duemilanove and I noticed that the leads of the battery connector are toughing the metal case of the USB connector on Arduino. I snipped them as short as possible, then I filed them almost flush to the board and placed a piece of electrical tape over them just to make sure no short is gonna happen.

During the weekend I will start using it with motors, servos and sensors. And a buzzer, LED and other beginner experiments. I plan to make a manual soon.

Here are the pictures:

Robots, nature, bees, and gardening, how do they mix together? After too much indoor activities one needs to get out and breathe! Harvest natural energy and create a little paradise. And ask the robots to help, of course.
