NEW PRODUCT – NTSC/PAL (Television) Video Glasses – You are from the future with these futuristic video glasses. Or at least, an 80’s version of the future. Wearing these turns your vision into what appears to be a 52″ television a few feet away. These are basic video glasses, they do work well, taking standard NTSC/PAL video in and projecting a 320×240 display onto your eyeballs. They’re not terribly comfortable for long term use as they’re a bit heavy, but we think these would be best used for hacking and modification of the the micro display/optics inside.
Comes with video glasses, AV adapter, charger and some removable headphones. Not good for people who require corrective glasses! Best for use by people with contact lenses or good vision. We tested it with a Raspberry Pi and it works great!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
