I would love to see a Mega2560 USB Host Shield

I know I can use UNO USB Host Shield but the problem is that I am making a Fingerprint Sensor Based Biometric Attendance System.

It uses a TFT Shirld with a TFT. The TFT Shield connects to pins 6,5,4,3,2 and 18x2 connector of Mega2560. So, If I stack USB Host Shield and SparkFun's MP# Shield on Mega2560 then I can't stack TFT Shield and TFT on top of it.

So, if USB Host Shield and SparkFun's MP3 Shield are made to the size of Arduino Mega2560 board with or without additional features then I can stack USB HOst Shield on top of Mega2560 and on top of USB Host Shield sits the MP3 Shield and on top of MP3 Shield sits the TFT Shield and on top of TFT Shield sits the TFT+Touchscreen.

You could buy some stack-able headers (18x2) and raise the missing pins up to the TFT shield. You can even use a strip of vero board or other blank PCB to raise it to the perfect height.
Forum Mod anyone?

I am going to manufacture a product and I can't stack 2 or 3 headers one on another. I am doing that for testing purpose. For final product I can't use that method.

I am using 18x2 stackable headers (3 pieces) stacked to raise the height.

Buy if A USB Host Shield is made using Mega2560 layout then it would be good. I can remove MP3 Shield from Product as it is an optional feature. It plays Voice messages like "Place Finger On Scanner", "Enrolling", et...

I am requesting SparkFun to make MP3 Shield with Arduino Mega2560 board Layout for this purpose. It will help many.

Also if new USB Host Shield is made I would love to see nRF24L01 connector and XBee Connector on it, so that we can provide wireless connectivity feature to our products.

I need Genuine boards and hence requesting Arduino to make USB Host Shield with Mega2560 layout with or without nRF24L01 and XBee Connectors.
