The Teensy Prop Shield is a wonderfully full-features sensor add-on for Teensy (and other) microcontrollers, featuring 11 sensor inputs, audio amplification and 8MB extra memory.

Description [Hide]

The Teensy is known as a great value, as it's Arduino-compatible, super-powerful, and has a well-established userbase. The Prop Shield is designed to mate with a Teensy to open it up for use for quicky-builds of props and costumes.

What the Prop Shield brings to the party is this:

  • Motion sensors - we're talking the big 11: X/Y/Z Gyro, X/Y/Z Accelerometer, X/Y/Z Magnetometer, plus air pressure (altitude) and temperature.
  • Audio Amplification - 2 Watts capable of driving 4~8 ohm speaker loads, allowing for Teensy's speech synth & sound effect.
  • Fast LED Driver - 5V buffered outputs for APA102 and other addressable LEDs. And Teensy's speed makes animations smoooth.
  • Extra 8MB Flash Memory - Ideal for storing sound clips and datalogging with the serialflash library.

The Shield can be directly soldered to a Teensy, but it is slightly longer. A slight increase in size and thickness results in a HUGE increase in functionality of your Teensy installation!

On a side note, although this is designed for a Teensy, it could be "hotwired" into any 3.3V compatible microcontroller to make use of most (if not all) of these features. It's a real bargain of a board, not be overlooked for adding functionality to your project.
