Bluefruit LE Sniffer – Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4.0) – nRF51822 – Firmware Version 2: Interested in learning how Bluetooth Low Energy works down to the packet level? Debugging your own BLE hardware, and trying to spot where something is going wrong? Or maybe you’re writing a custom application for your phone or tablet that needs to talk to existing BLE hardware, but you don’t know how it works beneath the surface? We have the perfect tool for you!
This Bluefruit LE Friend is programmed with a special firmware image that turns it into an easy to use Bluetooth Low Energy sniffer. You can passively capture data exchanges between two BLE devices, pushing the data into Wireshark, the open source network analysis tool, where you can visualize things on a packet level, with useful descriptors to help you make sense of the values without having to crack open the 2000 page Bluetooth 4.0 Core Specification every time.

Black and White Eye Stickers: Looking for something extra to jazz up your papercraft, cardboard or robotics project? We spy with our little eyes these Black and White Eye Stickers – they’ll will make an excellent addition to your craft supplies! Eye caramba, are we making a spectacle of ourselves? These puns are getting cornea and cornea.
These quirky eye stickers come in six styles, so you can mix and match all sorts of googly looks, endowing your robotics or trashbot with some seriously expressive eyes. Each sticker measures roughly between 1.5 and 2cm. See more!
High Temp Waterproof DS18B20 Digital Temperature Sensor – 3m long: This is a pre-wired and waterproofed version of the DS18B20 sensor made with a PTFE wire cable. Handy for when you need to measure something far away, or in wet conditions. This sensor is a little more expensive than the other waterproof version we have with a PVC cable because this one can be used up to 125°C – the limit of the sensor itself. That said, it’s still not recommended for salt-water or corrosive environments since the stainless steel will eventually rust! See more!
Mini On/Off Push-Button Switch: Push once to turn on, push again to turn off, push again to turn the other side on, one last push and it’s off again! It’s basically a push-button toggle switch that connects and disconnects.
This clicky Mini On/Off Button switch makes a great power switch or mode toggler. They’re often referred to as ‘flashlight’ switches because you see them used in small flashlights. Can reliably handle up to 500mA and up to 12VDC. See more!
CD DVD Spindle Motor: What’s this? A record player for ants?? Not at all! This is a DVD/CD Spindle Motor, that thing that’s inside a CD or DVD player, that turns the disc around really fast. These motors have some great benefits that make them easier to use than ‘130’ style DC hobby motors See more!
Thermocouple Type-K Glass Braid Insulated – 5m: Thermocouples are best used for measuring temperatures that can go above 100°C. This is a bare-wire bead-probe which can measure air or surface temperatures. Most inexpensive thermocouples have a vinyl covering which can melt at around 200°C, this one uses a fiberglass braid so it can be used in high temperature measurements such as heaters and ovens. There’s a small piece of heat shrink on the end to keep the fiberglass from fraying. If you’re using at >250°C temperatures, simply remove it with a small blade. See more!

This Color Coded Header takes the mystery out of your Raspberry Pi’s 2×20 pinout. No longer will you stare in confusion at all 40 pins, trying to count out which one you want to plug your wires into. See more!
Convex Glass Lens with Edge – 40mm Diameter: The eyes have it! Add this little lens to make a big expression with our Spooky Eyes demo for microcontrollers or Raspberry Pi. These are gorgeous glass (not plastic/acrylic!) lenses, with brilliant clarity and a nice convexity (is that a word?) They’ve even got a lip-edge so you can mount them easily with a 38mm cutout. See more!
