Something precious, something small has just arrived from a far and exotic location. The board is actually nice to look at - of engineering meets art type.
The set includes two servos, the Arduino board with the demo shield, a micro-USB cable, a quick-start guide and a power plug that I will use during my next vacation in the USA. Plus four rubber feet!
The QR-codes on the back of the board/shield bring you to the ADK page.
Something needs to be done about the power plug. For the ADK USB host shield to work, the Arduino needs a separate power source because it must power the USB. This is because in accessory mode, the accessory board is the host.
