Hello! I wanted to make a simple, cheap and minimalistic target board for picaxe.
It has got M/F headers and only the necessary components.
You can even make your own shields!
Later, I will add circuit diagrams and other stuff!
Video of more complicated blink:

symbol led = 0 
symbol delay = b0
delay = 1000
high led
pause delay
low led
pause delay 
let delay = delay - 10
goto main

Looks very cool and easy, can you actually program the controller with a audio plug connection?
Yeah, picaxe programming cable usest 3.5mm plug! Check http://picaxe.com
Long live Picaxe
Very neat&nbsp; &amp; -yes- PICAXEs run OK on ~2.5-5.5V, although just 2 cells don't give much supply overhead...&nbsp; THOUGHT: You may want to check assorted 2, 3 &amp; even 4 X AA switched battery box approaches =&gt; &nbsp;<a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/picaxe" rel="nofollow">https://picasaweb.google.com/picaxe</a> &nbsp; or <a href="http://www.picaxe.orcon.net.nz" rel="nofollow">http://www.picaxe.orcon.net.nz</a><br> <br> I've been a great fan of these battery boxes &amp; regularly hack them for all manner of circuitry. See perhaps =&gt;<a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Single-LED-ammeter-FLED-based/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Single-LED-ammeter-FLED-based/</a>&nbsp; One we made used a 3 X AA box but fitted just 2 cells &amp; put the PICAXE circuitry on a lift out PCB &quot;finger&quot; that fitted it the 3rd cell space. Holes for LEDs etc were suitably drilled. The lid slid on to hide everything nicely.&nbsp;&nbsp; Stan.
