It works quite well it is a circuit which allows you to power the development board and control a 12V RGB LED Strip via Bluetooth
I am quite happy with the prototype and gained some experience with soldering and building circuits on protoboard.
I will draw a schematic of the project soon and add some build instructions to the project page.

Started working on the new stackable module which is essentially a shield.
Added some male headers and a LM7805 as a voltage regulator that supplies power to the module and the development board itself.
I want to add a 3.3v regulator since I will be adding a HC-06 as well.
Will post some photos soon.

"You require more vespene gas!"
This Saturday I sat down at my bench sorted all my components together, started warming up my soldering station. Reached for my tube velleman 17gr of 60/40 rosin core solder and noticed it was empty!
Living in South Africa on a tight budget I usually have to buy in small quantities.
I also only have one protoboard left to use for this project and from my last experience screwing up is easy to do especially if you are a noob like me. I mean just a few days ago I blew my fuse on my multimeter by trying to measure amps directly from my breadboard power supply.
I have made a plan and ordered 200gr solder and 5 more protoboards, by next weekend I should be restocked and organised.
I will spend the day drawing a schematic of the project and upload here.
Does anybody else sometimes run into a day where you just don't have any stuff to work with?

I have created the first revision of the board and started testing. I have not created a new module/shield yet but is the next thing on my list.
