Make has released their 2017 holiday gift guide and it includes the Adafruit Gemma! You can sort by price or by category – gifts range in price from under $10 to around $300 so there is something for every budget!
MESH Starter Kit & GPIO: MESH is a kit of app-enabled blocks that makes it easy to program wireless electronics. Each MESH block has built-in functions to add sensors, internet connectivity, web services, and other devices to your project in an instant. With this kit, you can add remote control, orientation detection, shaking detection, flipping detection, tapping detection, an LED indicator, or a 10-pin, digital and analog, general purpose input/output to your project without any soldering or programming. Better yet, MESH GPIO can be used with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, sensors, and actuators.
Readers Safety Glasses: It’s important not to let yourself have any excuses not to wear safety glasses. Yet those of us who wear readers for closeup work often have to wear safety glasses over them. As a result, I’ve been buying safety glasses with bifocal-style readers built in. Of all the brands I’ve tried, I really like the ones from Pyramex. They are low profile goggles that seal around the eyes to prevent wayward bits from coming in around the side. The V2G pair I bought came with both arms and a head strap and fit comfortably.
