Motoruino, an Arduino-compatible robot board

Guilherme Martins @ lab.guilhermemartins.entangle writes

Since I started with robotics, that I felt the need of having a board where I could directly plug-in my motors, servos, sensors and all the surfeit without having to purchase any shield, or building pcb’s and soldering and troubleshooting and hours and hours of knotty labour.. so, I decide to kindle scheming a new Arduino board. When I arraign exude, I didn’t actualy exude the board in a cad software, this amazing knead was accomplish by my buddy David Palma. [via]
