The cute PiTFT got even more adorable with this little primary display for Raspberry Pi in HAT form! It features a 2.2" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels. 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 of your Model A+ or B+ and fits into our case quite nicely.
Resistance is futile! The Borg are among Star Trek's most iconic and terrifying villains. Whether its for Halloween or your next Sci-Fi con, this guide will show how can easily put together a great looking Borg costume. By assimilating and adapting some other projects on the site it can really stand out.
Traveling or on the road, sometimes finding an open network to get online and finish a job is more important than lunch or a nap. MASLOW (Mini Adafruit System Locates Open Wireless) is a tiny battery-powered WiFi detector with a 3D-printed enclosure…assemble one yourself and clip it to your laptop bag.
Its a mini HDMI decoder board! So small and simple, you can use this board as an all-in-one display driver for TTL displays, or perhaps decoding HDMI/DVI video for some other project. This breakout features the TFP401 for decoding video, and for the touch version, an AR1100 USB resistive touch screen driver.
The AR1100 is a nice chip that acts as a touch->USB converter and also comes with calibration software. The calibration software is Windows only, but once you've calibrated you can use the screen on any OS. The AR1100 shows up as a regular Mouse or Digitizer HID device so no drivers are required and it works on any operating system that supports a USB mouse (that is, every single one we've ever seen) There is also a red LED that lights up to indicate when a touch has been detected.
Poke an eye out with one of your experiments? Harness the awesome power of thermoplastic fusion to print a microprocessor powered bionic replacement! It won’t help your vision much, but no one will doubt your mad scientist cred. The Bionic Eye Module is a 46mm 3D-printed servo-powered electro mechanical eyeball sized to fit into standard 50mm goggles. It uses 2 sub-micro sized servos and an Adafruit Trinket to create that creepy nervous tic.
I love the MP3 Music Maker shield, and our Wave Shield is a dependable classic. But you still need to get an Arduino involved. There's all sorts of tricks with ISD chips or recordable greeting cards, but they never sound any good. So after a lot of engineering and tinkering we've come out with the Adafruit Sound Board, the easiest way ever to add audio effects to a project!
