So you like the boards on the market but maybe you want to design your own Printed Circuit Board!
That is what I decided was necessary for this project Haptika. Sparkfun provides an amazing tutorial for getting started with a great piece of design software called CadSoft EAGLE PCB design. EAGLE provides freeware to get started with designing PCBs that are meant for non-profit use only. This post provides a walk through of my experience and any helpful information I can relate!
