Yes, it’s another barebones Arduino, but the additional prototyping space makes it a unique and very handy board to have. The Atmega328 is socketed, so if you do something crazy, you are back in business for under $5. At a cost of $16, it’s a affordable alternative to the commercial clones. It does not include a USB interface, so a FTDI cable for ICSP programmer will be necessary (headers at upper left). Only 3 days left on the kickstarter, so get in fast!
