Embroidery Hoop – Night Vision Upgrade

We added some LEDs and a battery pack to an embroidery hoop to allow for stitching at night.
Consider this Version 1 since there is no on/off switch – you have to remove the batteries manually 😉
Build time: ~2-3 hours.

Arduino and Breadboard Holder v2

Original idea taken from SparkFun’s holder.
Build time: 3-15 minutes, depending if your Lego pieces are pre-sorted or not 😉
Parts list: 1x 16×16 base plate, 2x Fence 1x4x1, 1x Wall Panel 1x2x1, 4x Square Brick 1×1, 2x Plate 1×6 and (optional) personal engineer.
Warning: This works perfectly with our particular (Conrad) breadboard which has grooves on 2 sides (left and bottom), making it necessary to use smaller pieces. Required Lego pieces for your own breadboard may vary somewhat.

Arduino and Breadboard Holder v1

Original idea taken from here.
I just used some old cardboard and cut slits on all 4 sides. Then I cut up some small pieces and put them into the slits. Voila!
Build time: ~15 minutes.
