This is a blank 13.56MHz RFID/NFC Laundry Tag Button with an NTAG213 chip – often used for laundry or garment identification, information sharing, contactless payment, but also found in other systems where a proximity card is desired. The button contains a small RFID chip and an antenna, and is passively powered by the reader/writer when placed a couple inches away.
Little clicky switches are standard input “buttons” on electronic projects. These are just like our Colorful Round Tactile Button Switch Assortment, but already assembled onto a PCB – they even have a pull-up resistor installed! The pins are normally open (disconnected) and when the button is pressed they are momentarily closed.
The first step in a robotics project is to get a motor spinning. Once you’ve done that you quickly learn that not all motors go the same speed, even if they are the same part number! There are always variations that relate to voltage, environment, and manufacturing changes. So, the second step is to figure out how fast its going! Turns out that’s not so easy, but the best way to get started is to add an encoder wheel and an optical or magnetic counter. As the motor turns, the attached encoder wheel spins, causing the counter to detect each passing spoke and that lets your microcontroller count and determine speed.
Easy e-paper finally comes to your Feather with this Adafruit EInk Feather Friend that’s designed to make it a breeze to add an eInk display. Chances are you’ve seen one of those new-fangled ‘e-readers’ like the Kindle or Nook. They have gigantic electronic paper ‘static’ displays – that means the image stays on the display even when power is completely disconnected. The image is also high contrast and very daylight readable. It really does look just like printed paper!
Coming soon! Automate your own adorable, IoT-enabled papier-mâché house. The small size of this build lets us explore wiring, user interaction, and firmware deployment without having to get a ladder out.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
