We’ve co-developed the new ProtoScrewShield with SparkFun Electronics! This big, bad daddy of a shield gives you lots of proto space, screw terminals galore, a couple of buttons, and a lovely yellow LED on pin 13. Go buy one at SparkFun, you won’t regret it!
Also, check out the build photos here on the product page.

Here’s an update for everyone who has asked when they can purchase ScrewShields: the shipment of parts we’re waiting on from China should be here in about three weeks. Once in, we’ll bag ‘em like crazy and get them out to the online retailers. Thanks for your patience!

Friend of WingShield Industries (FOWSI) and all-around awesome guy Collin Cunningham posted this photo of his ScrewShield mounted on an Arduino Mega. In doing so he has created an excellent looking space cruiser. Our own Tod Kurt says:
Now I want to make stop motion space battles with various Arduinos equipped with various kinds of “armament”.
Let’s hold him to it!

Here is a happy WingShield Industries customer in the Maker Shed at the Bay Area Maker Faire ’09. He was a good sport for letting me photograph him getting a ScrewShield to buy. (Based on the knowing look, I’d say he’s plotting something mischievous to build with all the new goodies.)
We had an excellent run at the Faire, selling out all but two of the ScrewShields in the first day. Those were grabbed up on Sunday morning, and the sad little empty bin was relegated to a lower shelf. We’ll be making up another batch soon, and those will be for sale online at the Maker Shed and a few other awesome kit stores.

WingShield Industries prides itself on its precision and efficiency. That’s why we have created the most up-to-date kit bagging assembly line in the Arduinoverse. Witness our factory floor:
OK, it’s really just a row of parts and a few hours of mindless grab-n-bag. But we dream big.

This project uses three Arduino boards and just as many sets of ScrewShields. It’s the Railographic Apparatus, or Rail-O-Graph, that Usman Muzaffar and I are creating to show at Maker Faire.
The ScrewShields have been a lifesaver getting this put together, and staying together.

Here’s one use for a ScrewShield: add a thumb-destroying Molex connector!

The awesome dudes at the Maker Shed took a last-minute order (OK, way past the cutoff, actually) for a box of ScrewShield kits to sell in the Shed at Maker Faire. The kits are now bagged up, labeled and ready for shipping. Thanks Marc, Rob, and Dan!
