Sorry – we thought that was clever. And while it wasn’t really, this potentiometer definitely is! We’ve seen these in miniature synthesizers. They’re bigger than a trim-pot, but smaller than a chunky potentiometer. Best of all no knob required! These have a knurled plastic grip with a white stripe marking. Use it as-is, for a low cost adjustment
Comes as a standard 10K ohm linear potentiometer with 0.1″ spacing it works great for breadboarding and prototyping. It has a nice feel, tweaking it is quite satisfying
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
