Description: The SparkFun Danger Shield mounts on top of your Arduino or Arduino Pro and equips it with a variety of fun and useful inputs and outputs. The Danger Shield has so much potential; we can’t wait to see what you’re able to do with it! The shield’s features include:
This product comes as a kit of parts, which you’ll have to solder into the included PCB. All parts are through-hole so it should go together relatively easily; but always check your component orientation before soldering!

This is an expensive shield, and I don’t quite feel like the quality matches the price. The original danger shield had LEDs built into the sliders, but this one does not.
If you are willing to get a non-RoHS version, check out the one from Seeed studio. It has a smaller 7-segment LED and no capacitive touch space, but it does have LEDs in the sliders.
Thanks for the review. There are many other versions of this product out in the world. I believe you may be thinking of someone else’s board. Ours have never had LEDs in the sliders.
