The 1.3" SHARP Memory LCD display is a cross between an eInk (e-paper) display and an LCD. This daylight-readable display has the ultra-low power usage of eInk and the fast-refresh rates of an LCD. This model has a matt silver background, and pixels show up as little mirrors for a silver-reflective display, a really beautiful and unique look.
Feel like someone is snooping on you? Browse anonymously anywhere you go with the Onion Pi Tor proxy. This is a fun weekend project that uses a Raspberry Pi, a USB WiFi adapter and Ethernet cable to create a small, low-power and portable privacy Pi. Plug the Ethernet cable into any Internet provider in your home, work, hotel or conference/event. Power up the Pi with the micro USB cable to your laptop or to the wall adapter. The Pi will boot up and create a new secure wireless access point called Onion Pi. Connecting to that access point will automatically route any web browsing from your computer through the anonymizing Tor network.
This breakout board is the ultimate companion for the VLSI VS1053B DSP codec chip. The VS1053 can decode a wide variety of audio formats such as MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, MIDI, FLAC, WAV (PCM and ADPCM). It can also be used to record audio in both PCM (WAV) and compressed Ogg Vorbis. You can do all sorts of stuff with the audio as well such as adjusting bass, treble, and volume digitally. There are also 8 GPIO pins that can be used for lighting up small LEDs or reading buttons.
The original Adafruit Motorshield kit is one of our most beloved kits, which is why we decided to make something even better. We have upgraded the shield kit to make the bestest, easiest way to drive DC and Stepper motors. This shield will make quick work of your next robotics project! We kept the ability to drive up to 4 DC motors or 2 stepper motors, but added many improvements:
If you have a project with any audio, video, graphics, data logging, etc in it, you'll find that having a removable storage option is essential. Most microcontrollers have extremely limited built-in storage. For example, even the Arduino Mega chip (the Atmega2560) has a mere 4Kbytes of EEPROM storage. There's more flash (256K) but you cant write to it as easily and you have to be careful if you want to store information in flash that you don't overwrite the program itself!
We like the AVR 8-bit family and we're excited to see Atmel upgrade the series with a USB core. Having USB built in allows the chip to act like any USB device. For example, we can program the chip to 'pretend' it's a USB joystick, or a keyboard, or a flash drive! Another nice bonus of having USB built in is that instead of having an FTDI chip or cable (like an Arduino), we can emulate the serial port directly in the chip. This costs some Flash space and RAM space but that's the trade-off.
These big, bright displays measures 1.27" or 1.5" diagonal and have 128x96 or 128x128 RGB pixels. The OLED display technology gives you vivid, high contrast images and does not require a backlight. With16-bit resolution for each pixel, you can display a wide range of colors. The SSD1351 driver chip has a 4-wire SPI interface. We also include an on-board boost converter and built-in level shifting for compatibility with both 3.3v and 5v microcontrollers. A micro SD card holder lets you store bitmaps and other data. Our library includes example code to show you how!
