    Not long ago I found a new type of solderless prototyping board (they call it "5eBoard," that is pretty easy to use. I built a simple electronic piano using a 555 timer for my son (try to get him into electronics). It turned out to be a nice project for beginners.

    The push button switch PBS-F adds an octave to the device. You can add more octaves this way.

    It seems like an interesting board but it has that feel that someone is trying to promote a product without promoting a product.

    So, are you someone who just randomly bought this board and made an advertising-grade photo on a white infinity background with a very professional looking schematic and felt compelled to post the source of the protoboard - as the first post to this forum? Or, do you work for e5Board?

    none of above. The schematic is from the kit I bought.
