Once upon a time a makers preferred enclosure for an electronic project was the famous Altoids Mint or Gum tin box. These days we 3-D print everything so it's time to update the Minty Boost with a new version. Updated electronics, newer batteries, and a 3-D printed box and what do you call it? Printy Boost!
You just found the perfect I2C sensor, and you want to wire up two or three or more of them to your Arduino when you realize "Uh oh, this chip has a fixed I2C address, and from what I know about I2C, you cannot have two devices with the same address on the same SDA/SCL pins!" Are you out of luck? You would be, if you didn't have this ultra-cool TCA9548A 1-to-8 I2C multiplexer!
For those who want to take it to the next level we now have a 3G Cellular Modem breakout! The FONA 3G has better coverage, GSM backwards-compatibility and even sports a built-in GPS module for geolocation & asset tracking. This all-in-one cellular phone module with that lets you add location-tracking, voice, text, SMS and data to your project in a single breakout.
Inventables' web based digital CNC software, Easel, currently requires a constant connection from a Mac or Windows based machine in order to send commands to the X-Carve over a serial port. This tutorial will show you how you can free up your main computer while the X-Carve is running by using a Raspberry Pi as a bridge to wirelessly send commands to the X-Carve's Arduino Uno. We will also use a Powerswitch Tail to automatically control the main power to the X-Carve when Easel launches in your web browser.
Would you like to add powerful and easy-to-use Bluetooth Low Energy to your robot, art or other electronics 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 Bluefruit LE Micro - it's an Atmega32u4 chip (same as used as in the Adafruit Flora or Arduino Leonardo) plus our SPI Bluefruit LE Friend in one.
If you've been diggin' our monochome OLEDs but need something bigger, this display will delight you. These displays are 2.3" diagonal, and very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. If you've been diggin' our monochome OLEDs but need something bigger, this display will delight you. These displays are 2.7" diagonal, and very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. This display is made of 128x32 individual white OLED pixels, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip.
If you've been diggin' our monochome OLEDs but need something bigger, this display will delight you. These displays are large and very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. This display is made of 128x64 individual white OLED pixels, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip.
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.
