NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK

Carbon Filter for Solder Smoke Absorption: f you do a lot of soldering indoors, a Carbon Filter is essential for absorbing that solder smoke and leaving your air smelling fresh.

These measure about 13 x 13cm but are easy to trim with scissors or a utility knife. It took us no time to crop one to fit our Miniature Desktop Fan. They’re 9mm thick, which slides into most ‘standard’ solder smoke filters. Read more

4 x AA Battery Holder with 2.1mm Plug: Here’s another addition to our growing family of AA battery holders. A holder for four (4) AA batteries! It’s got an 8″ long power cable with a 2.1mm DC jack at the end, and, oh yes, it’s in classy Adafruit black. Read more

SMT Straight Connector for micro:bit: If you want to do more with the BBC micro:bit, getting those pins from the card-edge connector is going to be your first hurdle. Unlike many dev-boards, the micro:bit isn’t breadboard friendly. That makes the ‘bit durable and easy to manufacture but means you need a special connector.

This version is a Straight style where the micro:bit plugs-in perpendicular to the PCB. Read more

SMT Right-Angle Connector for micro:bit: If you want to do more with the BBC micro:bit, getting those pins from the card-edge connector is going to be your first hurdle. Unlike many dev-boards, the micro:bit isn’t breadboard friendly. That makes the ‘bit durable and easy to manufacture but means you need a special connector.

This version is a Right-Angle style where the micro:bit will lay parallel to the PCB Read more

Motion Control Screwdriver: Doctor Who has the famous sonic screwdriver, and we have the next coolest thing, a Motion Control Electric Screwdriver! Ergonomic, comfortable to hold, and constructed out of stainless steel, it’s a seriously exquisite hand tool with a ton of smarts that will make it your new favorite tool.

Unlike most screwdrivers where you have to twist your wrist like a uncultured barbarian, this screwdriver has an IMU (inertial measurement unit) that can detect when you twist the tool left or right. Hold down the power button, and with the flick of your wrist, the screwdriver will automatically rotate in the direction you twisted! It’s completely amazing, and we use ours every day now.

Espruino MDBT42Q Breakout: Try the JavaScript of things with the Espruino – the world’s first open-source JavaScript microcontroller! This little board has an nRF52832 microcontroller pre-programmed with Espruino all ready to go so you can start playing with Javascript-microcontrollers. Warning: if you only use Assembly and think that even embedded C/C++ is for wimps, this device might explody your head.

The Espruino is a tiny computer with a JavaScript interpreter, allowing for instant feedback from whatever device you’re working with. Simply set up your code with the Espruino and send it to the device without having to wait for the board to erase and reprogram the flash – it’s fully interpretted! Read more

Adafruit Mini Color TFT with Joystick FeatherWing: Add a dazzling color display to your Feather project with this Adafruit Mini Color TFT with Joystick FeatherWing.

It has so much stuff going on, we could not fit any more parts on the PCB! There’s a 0.96″ 160×80 Color TFT Display with 16-bit full color capability. And, so you can make a proper UI we added a 5-way navigation switch and two push buttons. The joystick can go left, right, up, down and ‘in’ for selection. Two buttons on the side can change modes or whatever you like. Read more
