What you get with this Hourlie


Arduino is an amazing platform to make projects, develop prototypes and try out your ideas, however when you try to plug lots of different things into your Arduino, it can get messy and hard to manage. There are shields available, that you just plug into the top of your Arduino, however these dont always have the functionality you need.

We can design and build you a custom Arduino shield for your project, or product! This means that you get something that you can just plug into your Arduino, but it has exactly what you need and doesn't have lots of wires trailing everywhere, or need lots of breadboards to connect everything!

Perhaps you have an idea for a project that needs to measure the temperature in a room, and if it gets to hot an RGB LED should go red, if it's too cold it should go blue, and if it's OK it should be green. Perhaps you also want to log the temperature to an SD card every second, and send the data to a web service using WiFi once an hour, and if the temperature is too hot and you think there's a fire, then you want it to send you a text message. Maybe this needs to be battery powered and rechargable.

It would be possible to make something like this, but you'd need lots of different modules. You'd have loads of wires and probably a big breadboard, plus all of the resistors, buttons and other components that you might need to make it all work.

We can design and build a custom shield that has all of your components! You get a single board with everything and it would just plug into you Arduino with no wires, no breadboards and no hassle.

We will design and make 2 shield for you, and post them to you!

We can make them in a range of colours, custom shapes, and anything you like written on it.

They can be for different Arduinos; Uno, Mega, Nano, or whatever.

Here are some ideas of modules that you could have on your shield:
-Battery Charger
-And more

Just get in touch and ask us about the modules you would like!

This hourly will mean that you can get up to 3 modules on your shield, and we will post it to a UK address.

If you want more more modules and postage outside of the UK, please see the add-ons below. If you want something else, or you have a more complicated project, please get in touch. We'd love to here from you.

P.S. - Although the hourly says 5 days to deliver, this will probably be a few weeks as we have to spend time making your boards!

What the Seller needs to start the work

I will need to know which modules you want on your shield. This can just be, WiFi, RGB LED, Battery charger, etc. Or if you have some specific modules, please let me know, for example you may want the WS2812 LED, and that's fine. However some specific modules may incur an additional fee, so please ask first.

Let us know what Arduino you want the shield for, e.g. Uno (the standard one, Mega, Nano, or whatever)

Let us know what colour you would like the board to be, we can make them in most colours, just ask.

Let us know if your shield should be a special shape, or have mounting holes in specific places.

Let us know if you would like a custom 3D printed case for your shield+Arduino

It is probably best for us to arrange a call or Skype to discuss this. If you have any questions at all, just send me a message.
