Hack the holidays with these two cool tips and tricks for the season, like how to make any pair of gloves touch screen friendly or create your own Christmas tree watering system!
Uses our conductive yarn!
NEW PRODUCT – Stainless Thin Conductive Yarn / Thick Conductive Thread – 35 ft. This 316L stainless steel thread falls somewhere between a thick thread and a thin yarn. Most sewing machines wouldn’t be happy with this thread since its thick, and it has the ‘furry’ soft feel of yarn which makes it poor for most e-textiles/wearables projects. However, the high conductivity and softness make it a great thread for making iPhone gloves!
Measures 0.4mm thick, 3 ply thread, 1.0 ohm per inch
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.
