μ.RAT: an Elecraft K-Pod Input Controller for Arduino or Pi Projects | #hamr #MakerTools

Rich Holoch has been documenting progress with the μ.RAT K-Pod controller project over on his blog – seen above the project is attached to a pair of stepper motors attached to a variable capacitor and roller inductor, with positioning displayed on the Pi OLED display. (Also the custom project logo-sticker is a nice touch!) Rich’s documentation includes thoughts and musings on the maker community, how the project “cuts across” other avenues of making, and of course eventually figuring out how and where to share the project (namely an upcoming “world tour” beginning this month at the East Bay Amateur Radio Club). It’s great to watch projects like this unfold and develop, as well as read the other thoughts they inspire – check out Rich’s blog for more and chime in if you have ideas or thoughts!

Adafruit PiOLED – 128×32 Monochrome OLED Add-on for Raspberry Pi: The Adafruit 128×32 PiOLED is your little OLED pal, ready to snap onto any and all Raspberry Pi computers, to give you a little display. The PiOLED comes with a monochrome 128×32 OLED, with sharp white pixels. The OLED uses only the I2C pins so you have plenty of GPIO connections available for buttons, LEDs, sensors, etc. It’s also nice and compact so it will fit into any case. 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.
