Being that I am a relative newcomer to this fun hobby.
It hit me a while ago that the breadboards are geared for components in a laid out structure.
Until...a project comes along where you may want to work with a bunch of LEDs. Rather than wire and solder the matrix that I am developing a may find the need to change out LEDs for brighter ones and I would have wasted a butt load of LEDs.
Yes, I could get shorter breadboards and align them in a linear stacked fashion but to me the visual effect is somewhat lost and spread out.
And Yes, I know I could line them out on a long breadboard but then I cannot see the patterns I am trying to animate.
Maybe this is a pipe dream on my part or maybe just a stupid question from this ole noob.
