What's going on In between my shields?

Just sandwich Dr.Duino™ between your shields. Then use the jumpers to break the connection between the shield above and below without taking apart your stack countless times! Cool right?

"The Holy Grail"

Dr.Duino™ will never cover the shield below it, EVER!!!!

Dr.Duino™ will see you now, get yours today!!!!

Risks and challenges

Everyone says this but as with any new product there are risks.
However, I take this VERY seriously!!!! After all you are taking a risk by backing us with your hard earned cash! As a kickstarter supporter myself, I am intimately familiar with this. I respect and understand this, nothing will be lefter to chance.

As such, we are partnering with Jayconsystems to manufacture Dr.Duino. They are an excellent vendor with a proven track record of on time delivery. They have been used for other kickstarter projects too! Check them out for your self: www.Jayconsystems.com

However should something occur rest assured that every effort will be made to address the issue.

A brief word on my back ground, I have been in the electronics industry since 1995. I have managed numerous projects from cradle to grave and everything in between. Please check out my bio for more information.

So, if you are ready for your own in house Arduino doctor, back us today!
