i love your blog. i will build an arduinome myself just like you but it's nice to get inspired by others.
thanx from berlin

why do you have two arduino shields in your part list?

Thanks for spotting that Philipp. It was a mistake, I've removed it.

Hi there,

I want to construct my own arduinome, but i couldn't find the "Arduino pcb shield" anywhere online. How can i buy or obtain one? Or do i have to print one for my own using the eagle files you attached? But printing a double sided pcb is hard to do, at least for me, and to fabricate one board is expensive. Any suggestions?

You should ask if some people would like to make an order with you.
Take a look at the arduinome website they already order once to the website

Just ask for the order number #4pcb_Owen at the following email adress

Otherwise if you can't find anyone interested you should probably consider buying a single one.
It will cost you 50€ max.It's not that expensive regarding the bargain that you get for doing your DIY monome.

I'm glad that you published a more detailed explanation about Arduinome DIYing.

I just wanted to notify you that the link for the following component is not working anymore

Yellow LEDs (3mm, 1000 mcd, shipping included) 70 11.35 EUR

I was really loking forward to that information cause i don't know which combination of leds and resistance I should for the button plate.
