Pimoroni Inky pHAT – 3 Color eInk Display – Yellow/Black/White: What’s that, you say? Pimoroni has another new super sweet tri-color e-paper display? Oh feast your eyes! This Inky pHat in Yellow/Black/White is a petite 212×104 pixel three-color display that looks fantastic and is easy to read even in bright daylight. Broadcast your tweets, the weather, or even graphing data. eInk is great for displays that don’t change often, due to the 3-second display-change-cycle. But the contrast and readability cannot be beat. Best of all, if you shut down the Pi, the display stays on, which is pretty magical the first time you see it.
HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sonar Distance Sensor + 2 x 10K resistors: If you’re like me, you’ve dreamed of being a dolphin – smoothly gliding through the water. Using your echo-location abilities to detect tasty fish treats. Until genetic modifications catches up with our desires, we’ll just have to make do with these handy HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sonar Distance Sensors and a pair of flippers. These ubiquitous sensors are really common in robotics projects, but they can also be used for automation, interactive art and motion sensing. They work at about 2cm to 400cm away, but we think 10cm-250cm will get you the best results.
Adafruit NeoTrellis RGB Driver PCB for 4×4 Keypad: By popular request, we’ve upgraded our popular Trellis elastomer button kits to now have a PCB with full color NeoPixel support! You heard that right, no more single-color LEDs, you can now have any color you like under the fantastic rubbery button pads we sell.
