Preview of the Forthcoming TS80 USB Soldering Iron
Marco Reps got ahold of a prototype TS80 USB soldering iron and in classic M. Reps style it’s not only a look at the product’s performance but a close-up of the assembly and board layout as well, along with temperature compare-and-contrast tests against the iron’s TS100 predecessor. (And also a really snappy quip at Apple thrown in for good measure tehehehe.) Mind you this is a prototype build, while people patiently await the full release from Miniware.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
