There are a lot of different shields out there for Arduino.  However, sometimes there arises a need to make your own.

Even more plentiful in the world of electronics are integrated circuits that do a lot of nifty things.  Some control output, some input, and some are sensors.  In this edition of Projects with Ryan Slaugh I show you how to make your own custom proto shield.  This project was influenced by a need I have on another of my projects.  That is was directed the choice of components.  Your custom needs may be completely different, but this project will help you get a start on custom board making at the proto level.
