Incorporating Bluetooth in a project no longer requires the most advanced microcontroller or lots of code…our Bluefruit LE UART Friend and accompanying app for iOS and Android make it easy! Building upon our popular "Kaleidoscope Eyes" NeoPixel goggles project, this guide shows how Bluetooth LE can be used even with the most modest setup.
Would you like to add powerful and easy-to-use Bluetooth Low Energy to your wearable FLORA project? Heck yeah! With BLE now included in modern smart phones and tablets, its fun to add wireless connectivity. So what you really need is the new Adafruit Flora Bluefruit LE! The Flora Bluefruit LE makes it easy to add Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity to your Flora. Sew 4 traces (or solder 4 wires) and BooM! Bluetooth Low Energy!
Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? This HAT features a 2.4" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The HAT uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top!
Add Internet to your next project with an adorable, bite-sized WiFi microcontroller, at a price you like! The ESP8266 processor from Espressif is an 80 MHz microcontroller with a full WiFi front-end (both as client and access point) and TCP/IP stack with DNS support as well. While this chip has been very popular, its also been very difficult to use. Most of the low cost modules are not breadboard friendly, don't have an onboard 250mA 3.3V regulator or level shifting, and aren't CE or FCC emitter certified....UNTIL NOW!
PowerBoost 1000C is the perfect power supply for your portable project! With a built-in load-sharing battery charger circuit, you'll be able to keep your power-hungry project running even while recharging the battery! This little DC/DC boost converter module can be powered by any 3.7V LiIon/LiPoly battery, and convert the battery output to 5.2V DC for running your 5V projects.
A TFT panel connected to a Raspberry Pi without the use of an HDMI decoder? What is this sorcery??? It's the DPI Kippah from Adafruit! This HAT-like board snaps onto a Raspberry Pi B+, A+ or Pi 2 Model B and with a little software configuration, allows you to have what normally would go out the HDMI port come up on a nice little flat screen.
Fire four solenoids, spin two DC motors or step one bi-polar or uni-polar stepper with 1.2A per channel (3A peak) using the TB6612. These are perhaps better known as "the drivers in our assembled Adafruit Motorshield or Motor HAT." We really like these dual H-bridges, so if you want to control motors without a shield or HAT these are easy to include on any solderless breadboard or perma-proto.
Kung Fu video games are only as good as the controllers used to interact with them. One Finger Death Punch (OFDP) for Steam on the PC is one of those games that's OK to play with a mouse or an XBox controller, but with Wii Nunchuks the fun meter is maxed out! This project shows how you can transform Wii Nunchuks into custom nunchuck controllers for the OFDP video game on a PC using a Nunchucky adapter and Pro Trinket creating what we call the iTapStick!
