A sticky way to store your Qwiic boards so they're visible and ready for use.
Like many of you, I have a problem: I have a lot of development boards floating around my desk, my workbench, in my pockets and even on my bedside table. It has been driving me nuts since well before I worked at SparkFun, and you can imagine how it has only gotten worse. With the advent of Qwiic, I now also have duplicates of things as well as a whole new collection of parts to work with and store. I know, first world problems!
With recent events being what they are, all of us have faced new challenges, but it also has brought to light a number of opportunities.
One of those opportunities has been getting my workshop cleaned up and working in a more efficient way, as it now plays multiple roles between an office for work; a workshop for many of my hobbies including woodworking and scale model building; and a general work horse of keeping an older house up and running. So, I set about figuring out a way to store my Qwiic board collection in a way that was accessible, multi-use and scalable using 3M Dual Lock.
I created a video about my solution and its use in my shop space as well as how it has impacted how I prototype projects moving forward. I hope you enjoy my project walkthrough and many of the ideas this has brought about around my shop. I hope that it inspires you to think about how you store parts and pieces!
