NEW PRODUCT – Thru-hole 5-way Navigation switch. This navigation switch is an intuitive way to add 5 button’s worth of interfacing with a single component. Inside is 5 switches: left, right, up, down and ‘select’ (pressing down), all with a common ground pin. The package isn’t exactly on a 0.1″ grid, but we found that you can push it into a breadboard with a little bending and it snaps in 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.
