Adafruit CLUE – nRF52840 Express with Bluetooth LE: Do you feel like you just don’t have a CLUE? Well, we can help with that – get a CLUE here at Adafruit by picking up this sensor-packed development board. We wanted to build some projects that have a small screen and a lot of sensors. To make it compatible with existing projects, we made it the same shape and size as the BBC micro:bit and with the same edge-connector on the bottom with 5 big pads so it will fit into your existing robot kit or ‘bit add-on.
Adafruit APDS9960 Proximity, Light, RGB, and Gesture Sensor – STEMMA QT / Qwiic: This breakout is chock full o’ sensors! Add basic gesture sensing, RGB color sensing, proximity sensing, or ambient light sensing to your project with the Adafruit APDS9960 Proximity, Light, RGB and Gesture Sensor. When connected to your microcontroller (running our library code) it can detect simple gestures (left to right, right to left, up to down, down to up are currently supported), return the amount of red, blue, green, and clear light, or return how close an object is to the front of the sensor. This device uses an I2C interface so it’s easy to wire up and use.
Adafruit HTS221 – Temperature & Humidity Sensor Breakout Board – STEMMA QT / Qwiic: Humidity is the concentration of water vapor (water when it’s a gas) in the air. Some places have more and make you feel soggy and hot like you’re in a sauna. Other places don’t have much, which makes it easier to get nose bleeds and static zaps. These are just a few examples of how humidity can have a noticeable impact on things that grow, like mushrooms or humans, as well as things that are sensitive to moisture, like delicate electronics, or humans.
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
