I wanted something quick, for testing out new versions of digitalWrite(), digitalWriteFast(), new boards and variants files, and so on. Something you could run a "Kitt car" pattern on, and immediately see "that isn't right", make it easier to attach probes to, and so on.
It took a while to build up the courage to "buy hardware" whose only purpose was to "test software." I'm not sure why - we're talking $8 for 5 PCBs (including (slow) shipping.)

Interesting idea. Some teachers or workshop organizers could use this to test their arduinos after their students have played with them for the duration of a semester/workshop or even one lab, to identify possible damages and make replacements, or just say "use pin3, cause pin2 on this arduino is dead".
Just curious, are you sure this isn't Karr, instead of Kitt? If you intentionally try to damage one of its pins, will it steer to the right to avoid collision?
