Mary Poppins had her TARDIS-like carpet bag. 90s kids had their Pokémon card binders. But we have the next best thing: DiMeCard, a super-slim 8-piece microSD storage card. The most useful thing you didn’t know you needed.
If you’re working with single board computers like the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone – or maybe you’re doing a lot of datalogging or photography work, you know that your microSD cards can multiply like tribbles. And those cards are so small you can’t mark them with what they’re for. That’s where this card-card comes in handy. For IT or photography work, where you need cards on the go, it fits nicely into your purse or wallet. For daily use, you can toss it on your desk, it’s large enough it won’t get lost or slip underneath your keyboard.
Our customized Adafruit memory card holder features a colorful Raspberry Pi GPIO pinout diagram on one side, and 8 write-able panels to note memory card contents on the other.
Each card is retained by an internal spring clip, so you’ll hear and feel a satisfying click when the microSD card is inserted and positively locked in. This is a safe way to avoid any bending strain on the chip inside the memory card. DiMeCard’s lanyard hole has already been tested by ‘swinging it’ at 100 RPM without any cards falling out.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
