StickyBUG – Make Your Own Shields for Arduino
StickyBUGs are small, modular boards that enable you to quickly make your own Arduino shield, with no wiring or soldering required!
About this project
StickyBUGs are small, modular boards that enable you to very quickly make your own shield, with no wiring or soldering required! Take a handful of stickyBUGs, plug them into the main stickySHIELD and you are ready to go! Full sample and library code is provided. StickyBUGs can be placed in any order, making them the ultimate configurable solution for Arduino development. Now you can create the shield you want that will fit perfectly into your next project. Fast, configurable and low cost make stickyBUGs an ideal addition to any makers toolbox.
We all love Arduino shields. They enable you to create many great projects by adding pluggable functionality to your main Arduino board, but they sometimes can have very fixed or limited functionality. For example, try finding a shield that has WiFi and a 12 channel servo control on the same board! With stickyBUGs this isn’t a problem – just place a wifiBUG and two servoBUGs on your stickySHIELD and you are good to go. Conventional shields can yield some pretty tall stacks, making it difficult or impossible to put into project boxes. But not with the stickyBUG system – many stickyBUG combinations can result in very low profile stacks. Not only is this aesthetically pleasing but it’s much easier to fit into a smaller project box.
Using very low profile sockets (only 5mm in height) ensures that stickySHIELDS are fully stackable. That’s right, you could have a sdBUG, temperatureBUG and rtcBUG on one shield, with a segmentBUG and wifiBUG stacked on the top. Only two stacks high with all of that functionality. Great stuff.
