Rugged Circuits is pleased to announce the Aussie Shield, a new shield for the Arduino Uno, Duemilanove, and Mega family of boards. This is the shield that sits "down under".
The difference is that on the Aussie Shield the Arduino plugs in upside down. Use the Aussie Shield for easy breadboarding, swapping Arduinos in fixed lab or art installations, using stacking shields standalone without an Arduino, or cross-wiring shield pins.
