Tilt your Arduino shields with a "Wing Tip" extension

In what can be called a "why didn't we think of this first?" discovery, we've found a great Arduino shield project by Instructables member wwtolman. They have created a shield - technically two PCBs which are triangular in shape, and perfect for making shields more visible on the desktop. The pair of PCBs simply have the required pins on the adjacent side, and stacking headers on they hypotenuse - for example:

From which point you can easily mount display or other shields to allow easier viewing of the contents. Making your own can be simple, as the PCB could be easily home made - or use the creator's .brd files and have some made. Either way, to learn more visit the project Instructable. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you need some regular shields, or just in a hurry to add external hardware or devices to your next Arduino project, you'll need a protoshield to mount the external circuitry. In doing so, consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
