Breadboard Pincushion KIT (2011)

This breadboard doubles as a pincushion, or vice-versa. The pincushion design has strips of conductive fabric adhered to its surface, so that metal pins or component contacts that protrude through the same piece of conductive fabric are electrically connected. This cushion can be used for prototyping electrical circuits as well as for storing pins, needles and components.
