Sparkfun Proto Screw Shield

Today I got a package from Sparkfun that included a Raspberry Pi 2, a couple of MOSFETS, some right angled breakaway headers, and a Proto Screw Shield kit. This shield makes it very easy to connect sensors to the Arduino, and still be able to stack additional shields on top of this one. There is quite a bit of room to put additional components on this board as well. The kit has to be assembled, which takes about 15 minutes, and is easy to do. There is a good tutorial for this at
