We do magical things with Power (with a Raspberry Pi as our assistant!)
Alchemy Power Inc.
Use a Pi-Zero-EzConnect board and the parts provided to customize and build your own GPIO connector. Includes everything needed to make your own customized connector for a Pi-Zero, Pi Zero W, Pi 3, Pi 2 or any other Pi / Pi-clone. Soldering required.
I first made the Pi-Zero-EzConnect board where most of the stuff was pre-soldered. I got requests from users to remove this and add that. So I started proving them parts. Ultimately the requests were plenty - made this into a kit that people could order.
1) Compact footprint.
2) Fully documented connections on top and bottom layers.
3) Unleash your creativity and customize the way a GPIO connector should be. Uses standard 3.54 mm terminal blocks. Soldering required.
4) Includes components needed. No hunting around for parts. Includes male headers for Pi Zero, 40 pin male-female header, one Pi-Zero-EzConnect board, twelve two port terminal blocks and two three port terminal blocks.
5) Mounts clean over a Pi-Zero. Uses two of the four mount holes for Pi-2 or Pi-3 etc. Secure it mechanically with a spacer.

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.
