  • Arduino Mega Protoshield Review

    This is a protoshield(short for prototype shield) for an Arduino Mega. They are sold for around 3 Euro and in my opinion it`s worth it compared to the afford it takes to make a shield like this by myself. All the pins, the two leds and the reset button are brought to the top and labelled correctly.  In the middle is a lot of room to solder electronic components onto it. In my case I want to solder a 10 degree of freedom IMU and some headers onto it and use it as a flight controller shield for my quadcopter.

  • Matrix Keypad from Ebay [Review]

The goal for me was to find out how everything works, how to make the video, how to cut it, upload it and so on. Therefore it`s nothing special, but anyway if you want to see a review about a Matrix Keypad, here you got it:
