This is a basic prototyping kit for the Raspberry Pi. It will allow you to quickly and easily prototype your hardware ideas without the needing to buy new kit each time. It is also compact, portable, and a lot more durable than most prototyping kits. You can either build simple circuits on the top of the Raspberry Pi, or bridge to external board for larger builds.

Step 1: You Will Need

To build this you will need...

You will also do well to get a breadboarding wire bundle plus some components to get experimenting and learning with. Some very basic projects to get started with are on Gordon Henderson's Wiring Pi web site and in the free MagPi magazine.

The basic tools you will need are...

  • A soldering iron
  • Wire cutters/strippers
  • A small lump of Blue-tack
  • A needle file
  • A sharp craft knife
<p>Nice neat instructable :)</p>
does this work with the rpi model b?
Sadly both the case and the shield are not compatible with the original Pi design. My suggestion would be to use a case design that can have it's top left off, and use one of the MiniPiio boards for the shield... https://www.tindie.com/products/DTronixs/piio-minipiio-breadboard-for-raspberry-pi-kit-only/
<p>Nice and tidy!</p>
