These are three life hacks that make working with wires and circuits way easier! (I made these up)
Instructables has sent me a prize! I don't know why but I want to say thanks to whoever thought of it!!!
Step 1: This Is Not Step 1, It Is Trick 1!
Put non conductive tape on the bottom of your arduino.
This will not let it short circuit due to a stray wire it has been sitting on.
Step 2: Trick 2
Want to connect a jumper wire to some other wire?
Look at the head of the wire, there may be a small flap like thing.
Slide a very thin object under the flap and simply pull the head off!
Step 3: Paper Clip
Take an insulated (aka colorful) paper clip and unroll it.
Then take a wire cutter and strip the insulation from the sides.
Makes a neat wire for breadboards!
