Step 6: Get hacking !

If you're happy with your soldering and there are no shorts or other issues, you're now ready to connect a breadboard to you Raspberry Pi.

Use a 26-W IDC Ribbon to connect you RPi and breadboard adapter
<p>Just a note to let you know I have added this ( a year ago ) to the instructable:</p><p> Comprehensive Guide to Electronic Breadboards: A Meta Instructable</p><p>&gt;&gt; <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Comprehensive-Guide-to-Electronic-Breadboards-A-Me/" rel="nofollow"> http://www.instructables.com/id/Comprehensive-Gui...</a></p><p>Take a look at a bunch of ideas for using breadboards.</p>
<p>Well Done! I've been using a set of pins I pulled from an old 16-bit graphics board I rescued from a hospital surplus hardware store. (machine was a 386SX based, used an old graphics capture board I couldn't find software for anymore, but had 3 80-pin array connectors, I took the longer side of a 26-pin section, and did a sloppy double-90 degree bend to the pins, just enough to get to the center rows of the breadboard. This method, would make a far cleaner connection!</p>
Not a complex project, but very useful. <br>This is the sort of thing the Pi was designed to inspire.
you got that right
Thanks for the 'ible. I was just about to do the same thing and was wondering how to solder the headers so that they would not be too short. I had never though of simply pushing the pins further ! Thanks for the tip :-)
