A kit I bought online with my Arduino Uno (from china, zero support) came with "Organic glass". It's basically a small slab of plexiglass. What would I use this for? Is it just for me to cut and use in a project box, or is there some sort of electrical purpose.

Is it possibly a base for the Arduino?

You know, my Arduino put a nice scratch in my computer desk, so I have been using it as a small work bench lol.

Screw it to it? That way if it rests on some coins, wires, other stuff, it doesn't short out.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

Wonder why it was called "Organic Glass", something lost in translation?

It's an unusual term, but plexiglass is an organic molecule (unlike "normal" glass), so I can see where it comes from.

True, but to me that phrase is what would happen if a marketing department and a group of translators got into a metaphorical fist-fight... and everyone lost. :)
