Now you can add eInk displays to your favorite single-board Linux computers! This tutorial will show you how to wire and run the RePaper eInk displays in the Adafruit shop on a Raspberry Pi or BBB. Learn how to assemble and program the RePaper eInk Development Board. These daylight readable displays are excellent for data-logging applications, outdoor displays, or any other ultra-low power project.
One thing I miss from my old stereo system is the big volume knob, maybe you wish your computer or laptop had a volume knob too, too? This tutorial will show how you can build a little desktop toy that lets you quickly set the volume without having to open up iTunes or your control panel or run amixer If you have a rotary encoder with a built-in switch, you can even extend this project to turn it into a volume/mute control
Trinket may be small, but do not be fooled by its size! It's a tiny microcontroller board, built around the Atmel ATtiny85, a little chip with a lot of power. We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don't want to give up your expensive dev-board and you aren't willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. It's our lowest-cost Arduino-IDE programmable board!
Instead of having a computer that talks thru the Arduino to a chip for programming, instead the Arduino itself programs the chip. This means you can program chips without having a computer involved. The good news about this technique is that it is incredibly fast, you can program chips 10x faster than with a computer and without having to type anything in.
