Sprockets, wheels, and gears, oh my! We really like our DC gear motors (a.k.a “TT Motor”) but unless you have a 3D printer it can be a challenge to get something attached to the axle. That’s why we’ve got this TT Motor Hub – it snaps onto the end and gives you two big flanges with holes. It’s a very good solution to quickly and easily mount custom wheels, cardboard & wood, or other mechanisms to your robot project. We have tested these that they won’t slip on the shaft! A wonderful, wee component you never knew you needed!

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. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
