64×32 Flexible RGB LED Matrix – 5mm Pitch: If you’ve played with multiplexed RGB matrices, you may have wondered “hey, could we possibly manufacture these on a thin enough PCB so it’s flexible?” and the answer is Yes! This LED panel is just like rigid 64×32 style ones, but without the plastic supports. This matrix has a thin, bendable PCB backing that can be gently bent and curved around surfaces.

Adafruit METRO M0 Express – designed for CircuitPython – ATSAMD21G18: Metro is our series of microcontroller boards for use with the Arduino IDE. This new Metro M0 Express board looks a whole lot like our original Metro 328, but with a huge upgrade. Instead of the ATmega328, this Metro features a ATSAMD21G18 chip, an ARM Cortex M0+. It’s our first Metro that is designed for use with CircuitPython! CircuitPython is our beginner-oriented flavor of MicroPython – and as the name hints at, its a small but full-featured version of the popular Python programming language specifically for use with circuitry and electronics.

ATMakers – Skill Badge, iron-on patch: ATMakers introduces Makers and Assistive Technology (AT) users and helps these two communities create the tools needed for collaboration.

AT users and those who support them desperately need engineers and technologists to help them achieve everyday tasks. High school STEAM and robotics students, hobbyists, and DIY electronics enthusiasts have the skills necessary to create innovative solutions today. These are serious white hats whom we’re proud to support.

Adjustable 60W Pen-Style Soldering Iron – 220VAC Euro Plug – BEST 102C: Practice makes perfect! If you want things done right, DIY is the way to go! You re-work hard all day, so treat yourself with the BEST portable Adjustable Soldering Iron we carry! C’est le meilleur! OK, “Best” may be subjective, but it’s also the name of the brand, so voilà! But, sérieusement, mes amis, this is a really nice iron, good enough for every-day use. We dig the slim pen iron (so comfortable to hold), adjustable-temperature (oooh, regardez, there’s a little control box!), durable grounded cord, and fast 60 Watt heat up!
