NEW PRODUCT – White Electroluminescent (EL) Tape Strip – 60 cm
NEW PRODUCT – White Electroluminescent (EL) Tape Strip – 60 cm. EL tape is the big sister to EL wire – it has the same glow effect but with a flat, wide shape instead of a round shape. The glowing part of the tape is 1 cm wide (the plastic coating is about 1.5cm wide). The other side has an adhesive on it so you can stick the tape onto something.
Because EL tape has more surface area than wire, it requires a more powerful inverter for the same length. This tape is about 4 times more capacitive (per length) than our high-brightness EL wire and 8 times more capacitive than ‘standard’ EL wire. For that reason, we are shipping the EL tape in 60cm lengths – the maximum amount for the 2xAA pocket inverter we carry. Plug it in and it will light up nicely!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
