Boards for prototypes

Quick DIY boards for fast prototyping (dead bug style)

For low frequency projects, a fast way to prototype is using a bare PCB and scratch some dividers that allow “manhattan” style prototyping.

I am especially very fond of this prototyping technique and I believe that PCB design should be avoided in the early stages of prototyping. Jim Williams was an artist in such designs. See some of his prototypes:
