Description: Introducing what is arguably the most important Arduino accessory ever created:
The Googly Eye Shield for Arduino.


An (extremely simple) open source hardware kit, but we feel that it fills an important niche.

Fits onto any “shield compatible” Arduino, large or small.
The shield provides a simple “platform” shield with labeled break-out points from every position on the edge connectors– with room to fit a little battery pack, a relay, a breadboard, or whatever else you need to mount in your stack. Plus, googly eyes!
Also compatible with most (not all, but most) Arduino shields. Happy to be the third wheel in the middle, or on top.

Also, compatible with most (not all, but most) googly eyes.

From the Googly Eye Shield FAQ:

1. What, exactly, does the Googly Eye Shield for Arduino do? It adds googly eyes to your Arduino (or shield-compatible clone).

2. No, really– What does it do? Yes, really: It adds googly eyes to your Arduino!

3. Are you serious? Yes, absolutely! It really does add googly eyes to your Arduino.

4. What else can you use it for? Lots! Even without the googly eyes, this is the missing “blank” Arduino shield– a low-cost, bare-bones multipurpose platform. We could have called this the “Insulator Shield for Arduino” — it’s a big flat empty surface that you can use for all kinds of things, without pesky electronics getting in your way. The only electrical features are a neat row of breakout holes, on a 0.1? grid, right next to the edge connectors.

Mount a solid-state relay or a battery pack or a speaker. You can use it to raise up many types of Arduino shields for extra altitude, providing a handy storage shelf underneath. You can mount a mini breadboard to the top, and use it as a low-cost prototyping shield. The possibilities are not particularly limited.

5. What if I don’t want googly eyes on my Arduino? The googly eyes are (we hate to admit) optional. Just skip that step of the assembly instructions if you really don’t want googly eyes. (Also, what is wrong with you?)

The Googly Eye Shield is an open source hardware design. Complete documentation here
