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.


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.
