TinyFPGA BX – ICE40 FPGA Development Board with USB: Wanna dip your toes into the world of digital logic design – but a little intimidated of the complexity? You may find a friend in the TinyFPGA BX, a FPGA development board that is designed from the ground up to be easy to use. Designed for makers and hobbyists, TinyFPGA BX puts you in control and takes the headache out of power delivery, clocking, configuration flash, and more. Its small form factor fits easily on a breadboard for learning or prototyping.
Cupcade: the Raspberry Pi-Powered Micro Arcade Cabinet Kit – Rev 3: Never be bored again with an adorable little arcade cabinet you can fit in your bag! This Raspberry Pi-powered kit combines our sharp PiTFT 2.8″ display, mini thumbstick, mini arcade push buttons, and a whole bunch of components to create the most adorable arcade cabinet in the known universe.
Comes as a big kit with lots of parts including all electronic components, the laser cut enclosure, and a blank SD card (you’ll need to write the RetroPie image). You provide a Raspberry Pi, soldering iron, solder wire, basic electronic hand tools, tape, etc.
Platinum RTD Sensor – PT1000 – 3 Wire 1 meter long: For precision temperature sensing, nothing beats a Platinum RTD. Resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) are temperature sensors that contain a resistor that changes resistance value as its temperature changes, basically a kind of thermistor. In this sensor, the resistor is actually a small strip of Platinum with a resistance of 1000 ohms at 0°C, thus the name PT1000. Compared to most NTC/PTC thermistors, the PT type of RTD is much most stable and precise (but also more expensive) PT1000’s have been used to measure temperature in laboratory and industrial processes, and have developed a reputation for accuracy (better than thermocouples), repeatability, and stability.
Raspberry Pi PoE Hat: Power over Ethernet (PoE) can make your project wiring a breeze – instead of needing a wire for power and data, you can use one Ethernet cable for both!
Simply attach the standoffs in the four corners of the HAT, then connect to the 40-pin header. Once the HAT is connected, you can power your Pi through the RJ-45 network connector.
USB micro B Cable with LEDs – Blue and Red – 1 meter: At first glance this appears to be an ordinary A to micro B USB cable. Plug it in to your device and power supply, and you get a colorful glitter of dozens of little LEDs embedded in the length of the cable.

US-100 Ultrasonic Distance Sensor – 3V or 5V Logic: 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 this handy US-100 Ultrasonic Sonar Distance Sensor and a pair of flippers. The US-100 is very similar to the popular HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensors, and even looks the same, but has a few extra tricks
