My simplest ever PCB

While wiring up the first 3 degree of freedom mammal actuator, I knew I was going to have a need to distribute power to each of the three motor controllers.  Thus, enter my simplest ever PCB.  It is just 4 holes for each of power and ground with traces connecting them.

It took an annoying amount of time to actually solder in all the necessary wires, but it was still better than the alternative of a bunch of ring terminals bolted together.
