Machined Aluminum Servo Arm: If you bought a servo from us you probably got a bunch of plastic add-ons that you can snap onto the rotating part of the servo. These are called ‘servo horns’ and the standard ones you’ll get are plastic pieces. They’re good but often short and not very strong plastic. See more!
micro:bit Club 10-Pack: The British Invasion is here! No, not music… microcontrollers! The BBC micro:bit is one of the newest and easiest ways to learn programming and electronics.
Designed specifically for kids and beginners, the micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customize and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. It’s a small, code-able device that is a non-intimidating introduction to programming and making – switch on, program it to do something fun – wear it, customize it, develop new ideas. See more!
Pixy2 CMUcam5 Sensor: Ever wanted your microcontroller to sense images without eating up all your processor speed? Or wish that you had an image sensor that wasn’t limited to RGB – but could sense hue and saturation as well? Or just want a kickstarted, open source camera sensor with a cool name? Enter the Pixy2 CMUCam5 – an image sensor for your microcontroller that you can teach what to look for. It’s a plug-and-play smart vision system for Arduino-compatibles, Raspberry Pi, or other microcontroller/computer systems. See more!
3 x AA Battery Holder with 2.1mm Plug: Here’s another addition to our growing family of AA battery holders. A holder for three (3) 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. See more!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
