Trellis is an open source backlight keypad driver system. It is easy to use, works with any 3mm LEDs and eight tiles can be tiled together on a shared I2C bus. Each Trellis PCB has 4x4 pads and 4x4 matching spots for 3mm LEDs. The circuitry on-board handles the background key-presses and LED lighting for the 4x4 tile. However, it does not have any microcontroller or other 'brains' - an Arduino (or similar microcontroller) is required to control the Trellis to read the keypress data and let it know when to light up LEDs as desired.
Adafruit's Bluefruit HID controller is the easiest way to instantly add an HID keyboard or mouse interface to your project, even without a microcontroller. Did you know that you can also use it to convert a normal wired keyboard to supporting Bluetooth? In this project you'll learn exactly how to do it.. and in the process you'll bring an iconic piece of computing hardware into the modern age. Time to start digging around in your closet for that old IBM PC you haven't seen for a few years, because with Bluefruit and the Model M, "it just clicks".
This TFT display is big (2.8" diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful (18-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240x320 pixels with individual pixel control. It has way more resolution than a black and white 128x64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive or capacitive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.
Add a glorious 2048x1536 retina-blasting, ultra-high pixel density, IPS display to any computer with a Thunderbolt/DisplayPort port. This product comes with a new 9.7" diagonal TFT display module (the same one used in the iPad 3 & 4), along with our custom made driver board, a stand-up monitor enclosure kit, 10' DisplayPort cable and 9V power adapter.
Adafruit’s Bluefruit devices are hands-down the easiest way to get Arduino communicating over Bluetooth. Taking inspiration from the helical Guggenheim museum, this project coils a contiguous reel of NeoPixels around a dapper top hat to create a wearable scrolling message display you can control with your iOS/Android phone or tablet.
