We do magical things with Power (with a Raspberry Pi as our assistant!)
Alchemy Power Inc.
Pi-EzConnect HAT (or shield) for a Raspberry Pi connects all GPIOs of the Raspberry Pi with easy-to-connect, fully documented terminal blocks. Extra Power and Ground connectors are available. Terminal block allow solder-less connections for sensors, LED's, pull-up resistors, pull-down resistors, or other electronic components.
The board comes fully assembled - not soldering needed.
Convenient breadboard capability on the board provides solder points for adding headers on the Pi-EzConnect board. The breadboard solder points are spaced 0.1 inches (or 2.54 mm) apart. Male or female header pins can be soldered in those locations making a mini breadboard on Pi-EzConnect. Instead of connectors, electronic components like pull-up or pull-down resistors, LEDs etc. can be soldered on to the breadboard. And if solder-less connections are needed, use the terminal blocks!!
Raspberry Pi header pins are extended approximately 8 mm - this allows enough space between the Pi-EzConnect board and the next board in the stack.
I got frustrated with bread boards. The jumper wires kept falling off. Any vibrations also shook the jumper wires loose.
1) Use the Raspberry Pi to its full extent. Connect multiple GPIOs to multiple sensors and other electronic devices using Pi-EzConnect.
2) Solder-free and solder connections for power (5V, 3.3V, Ground) and all GPIOs.
3) Solder connections for other components (a mini breadboard).
4) Compatible with Raspberry Pi 40 pin header definition and HAT format.
5) Works with 40 pin header Raspberry Pi e.g. Pi-2, Pi-3 as well as Orange-Pi, Asus Tinker etc. - computers which follow 40 pin HAT format.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
Percy Kawas is the founder, CEO, chief Alchemist, main geek ..... of Alchemy Power Inc. (API), a company started to collect power from the wind in an efficient manner leveraging Bernoulli’s principles. The XPS-1600 is the first product which meets that goal. Measuring the performance on the XPS-1600 and my familiarity with Unix+software/hardware led me to use the Raspberry Pi. I loved the fact that the Raspberry Pi is a low cost Linux Computer, with access to GPIOs and other capabilities. It amazes me how the user community have used this product in many different ways!!!
Percy has also designed and implemented several hardware and software projects. The most recent ones can be found on API website and on Tindie. Percy has worked at large companies like AMD, Cisco, SynOptics (Bay Networks/Nortel/gone-under) and created multiple startups. Percy has also been an independent consultant for several years, taught courses at UC Berkeley extension and other places. Percy loves to referee soccer, field hockey, read, watch Nature and Science programs, hike and travel.
