I always come back from from a Raspberry Jamboree with more geek stuff and trinkets , let’s face it it would be rude not to. The latest CamJam was no exception, and I will actually review some of it here starting with Adafruit’s Low-profile microSD card adapter for Raspberry Pi. It is a very low cost , high-tech adapter – enabling the use of Micro-SD cards – for good or for bad. The build quality as with most things Adafruit is very good and the Micro SD card inserts into the adapter with a very well engineered and satisfying click. At about £6 ($5.95 from the US) it is a very well priced accessory.
Low-profile microSD card adapter for Raspberry Pi: Make your Pi a little slimmer with this microSD card adapter board. It slides in where the SD card goes but is half the length. Pop in a microSD card for a sleeker machine. The microSD card holder is a push-push type so you can push on the edge that sticks out to remove the card when necessary. Read more.

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.
