So we're finally getting a grip on good bread boarding and we are shrinking the whole system to a manageable size.
We tried soldering components to proto board but we still need to learn some of the basics to get pretty results. Bread boarding is still a bit faster and more forgiving :)
Note to self; use the right pliers and grippy things. try not to break the wire while squeezing it, check the signal connections with a multimeter often, be consistent
