NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK


5V Electromagnet 25 Kg Holding Force P40 20 ID 3875 19 95 Adafruit Industries Unique fun DIY electronics and kits

5V Electromagnet – 25 Kg Holding Force – P40/20: What this means is that you just need to power this here electromagnet with about 5VDC (you don’t have to be exact, 4-6V will work fine) and ka-pow, it’s now a magnet. Turn off the power and it reverts back to a normal chunk of metal. Since its a coil, you’ll need to use a motor or solenoid driver with kick-back protection. Our Crickit boards will work great.

Please note: electromagnets are specified with “holding force”, say 25 Kg / 55 lb. This is not how much weight they can pick up! Divide the holding force by 5-10 to get a rough estimate of how heavy a thing it can pick up. So in this case, about 5 Kg / 10 lb max. Note that pick-up weight also depends on a flat surface and max surface contact, and the ferromagnetic metal content. A perfectly flat steel cube will work great, something oddly shaped or covered in rubber or plastic will not!

Please note: electromagnets are specified with “holding force”, say 10 Kg / 22 lb. This is not how much weight they can pick up! Divide the holding force by 5-10 to get a rough estimate of how heavy a thing it can pick up. So in this case, about 2 Kg / 4 lb max. Note that pick-up weight also depends on a flat surface and max surface contact, and the ferromagnetic metal content. A perfectly flat steel cube will work great, something oddly shaped or covered in rubber or plastic will not!

Please note: electromagnets are specified with “holding force”, say 5 Kg / 11 lb. This is not how much weight they can pick up! Divide the holding force by 5-10 to get a rough estimate of how heavy a thing it can pick up. So in this case, about 1 Kg / 2 lb max. Note that pick-up weight also depends on a flat surface and max surface contact, and the ferromagnetic metal content. A perfectly flat steel cube will work great, something oddly shaped or covered in rubber or plastic will not!

Flexible Protoboard 20cm x 30cm ID 3904 12 50 Adafruit Industries Unique fun DIY electronics and kits

Flexible Protoboard – 20cm x 30cm: Make your next project super-flexy with a biiiig prototyping board that can twist and shout– err, twist and bend! This passive flexible proto-PCB is about large as a piece of paper, but instead of dead-trees its made of very thin FR4.

We’re not bending the truth! This protoboard is only 0.4mm thick, so its extremely bendable and you can cut it easily with scissors – just don’t use your nice fabric scissors since the fiberglass will dull them. It has a bend radius of about 2 or 3″. You can also crease it, but that might break a trace if you crease a trace, and of course it may crack and break along the crease.

Smore Magazine Aug Sept 2018 Edition ID 3920 8 95 Adafruit Industries Unique fun DIY electronics and kits

Smore Magazine – Aug/Sept 2018 Edition: Science like a girl! Feast your eyes on this super special anniversary edition of Smore Magazine, a science magazine for smart young girls who can’t stop wondering about the world around them. We love Smore (or, Science-more!) for their fun and un-intimidating issues and for their dedication towards equal representation of women in STEM. Far more than a stereotypical “girly” magazine, Smore was created to inspire girls with fun, engaging content, and by sharing stories of successful women in STEM fields.

This issue features Limor “Ladyada” Fried with a fantastic write-up on how she got started in DIY electronics and building her own company. Scared by the idea of troubleshooting a project that doesn’t immediately work right? In Limor’s words, “To succeed, you have to get pretty comfortable with failing.” We believe building resilience is a great life lesson for young girls, not just for electronics.

HackSpace Magazine Issue 3 February 2018 ID 3925 4 95 Adafruit Industries Unique fun DIY electronics and kits

HackSpace Magazine Issue #3 – February 2018: HackSpace Magazine is the monthly magazine for the modern maker! Issue #3 highlights Scrap Heap Hacking, a perfect complement to Adafruit Crickit boards and our Trashbots!

From the editor, Ben Everard, “We live in a throw-away society, and it’s destroying the planet … As makers and hackers, we’re in a position to change this. This month we’re taking a look at how to move in the opposite direction and reuse parts from scrapped products. This isn’t so much a skill as a state of mind. If you stop seeing old products as something to dispose of and start seeing them as the parts for your next project, you can save money, save the planet, and make some truly unique creations.”

Mini Oval Speaker 8 Ohm 1 Watt ID 3923 1 95 Adafruit Industries Unique fun DIY electronics and kits

Mini Oval Speaker – 8 Ohm 1 Watt: Hear the good news! This wee speaker is a great addition to any audio project where you need 8 ohm impedance and 1W or less of power. We particularly like this speaker as it is small and comes with nice skinny wires with a connector on the end. It has a handy “Molex PicoBlade” 1.25mm pitch 2-pin cable, which makes plugging into a board easy. Or you can cut off the connector and just solder/clamp onto the wires directly.
