Split-Flap Display Contains Thousands of 3-Letter Abbreviations – and Muybridge’s Cat!

With this split-flap display you can set the display to common internet abbreviations like ‘lol’ and ‘brb’ but it’s also possible to create entirely new abbreviations from the flaps that your friends or colleagues would have to decipher! (Think ‘mrz’ and ‘plt’ – those are for me to know and you to find out!) And just because you can, the final flap contains frames from Muybridge’s cat video (which, it should be noted, is the world’s first cat video). Amazing!

Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Shield – I2C interface: You want to make a cool Arduino robot, maybe a hexapod walker, or maybe just a piece of art with a lot of moving parts. Or maybe you want to drive a lot of LEDs with precise PWM output. Then you realize that the Arduino has only a few PWM outputs, and maybe those outputs are conflicting with another shield! What now? You could give up OR you could just get our handy PWM and Servo driver shield. It’s just like our popular PWM/Servo Breakout but now Arduino-ready and works with any Arduino that uses shields: Uno, Leo, Mega, ADK, its all good. Read more.


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
