Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 17th 2012! We are pleased to announce our annual Adafruit’s Father’s day sale, 10% off all tools and iCufflinks & ties (in stock) through Sunday 6/17/2012 (11:59pm ET). Give Dad the gift of electronics and pick up a soldering iron, accessories for building things or if you just want to get him a gift certificate, we have those as well. The 10% off applies to the tools section only (and iCufflinks and ties) and cannot be combined with other discounts. To get the discount use the code fathersday on check out in the discount code area on check out. Limit 1 use per customer. Here are some Adafruit goodies we think Dad will love!
iCufflinks – Sophisticated. Modern. Open Source. Gorgeously machined aluminum with a subtle pulsating LED. Perfect for Father’s day or for that geek who loves technology and needs to get dressed up for a special event. Welcome to the future!
USB Microscope – Give Dad the gift of SUPER VISION! As electronics get smaller and smaller, you’ll need a hand examining PCBs and this little USB microscope is the perfect tool. Its smaller and lighter than a large optical microscope but packs quite a bit of power in its little body.
Circuit board necktie – printed from a vintage circuit board silkscreen, this tie is black with silver ink.
Beagle USB 12 Protocol Analyzer + Sticker – USB complexity got Dad down? Does he need a hand with enumeration? Is Dad Reverse engineering a USB device? Dad will fall in love with the Beagle 12 USB Analyzer.
Precision screwdriver set (6 pieces) – This set contains 6 screwdrivers, 3 Phillips (#1, #0 and #00) and 3 flat (2.4mm, 1.8mm and 1.4mm). These sizes will open up pretty much any consumer electronics you come across. We picked this set to carry because it is better quality than most low cost sets.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
