The SparkFun Danger Shield mounts on top of your Arduino and equips it with a variety of fun and useful inputs and outputs. The Danger Shield has so much potential. We can’t wait to see what you’re able to do with it! The shield’s features include:

  • Three linear slide potentiometers connected to the Arduino’s analog pins 0 through 2.
  • Red and yellow LEDs connected to digital pins 5 and 6 - PWM pins - so you can easily vary their brightness.
  • Three momentary push buttons connected up to the Arduino’s digital pins 10 through 12. Those lines will go low when the buttons are pressed.
  • A photocell and a temperature sensor, both with analog outputs. These are connected to the analog pins 3 and 4 respectively.
  • An 8-bit shift register set up to control a blue 7-segment LED.
  • A buzzer - so you can get sound out of your Arduino
  • Capacitive Touch pad - Using the CapSense library to sense touch.

This product comes as a kit of parts, which you’ll have to solder into the included PCB. All parts are through-hole so it should go together relatively easily. Always check your component orientation before soldering!
