Board assembled

I have received the PCBs and assembled the first one. Everything expect connections to external components, that is.

Here's a picture. It looks pretty much like the rendering. And I know: some of the soldering joints could have been made better but bear in mind that this is my first SMD soldering attempt so I'm actually pretty pleased with the result.

@Shawn: Yes, it works pretty well. I'll post an update soon. The only change I made was to use a separate IR LED and photo transistor insted of a photo interrupter.

@Chris: Thanks :) And I got it made here:
