This is the SparkFun Pi Wedge, a small board that connects to the 40-pin GPIO connector on the Raspberry Pi, and breaks the pins out to breadboard-friendly arrangement and spacing, and even adds a couple of decoupling capacitors on the power supply lines.
The "Wedge" also makes the initial bringup process easier - you can plug an FTDI Basic module into the built-in serial port. Each Pi Wedge B+ comes as an easy to assemble kit that can can be inserted into the RPi's GPIO port that allows you to prototype as soon as you are done soldering.
