Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 with WiFi – 2GB RAM and 8GB MMC: The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 is based on the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, but in a smaller form factor – perfect for embedding into products or projects without the bulk of classic Raspberry Pi. You get all the computational power of Raspberry Pi 4 in a compact form factor for deeply embedded applications. The CM4 incorporates the same quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 processor, dual video output, gigabit Ethernet, UART, I2C, SPI, I2S, and a few PWM for good measure.

Microsoft Machine Learning Kit for Lobe with Raspberry Pi 4 4GB: Machine learning is a transformative tool that’s redefining how we build software—but up until now, it was only accessible to a small group of experts. At Adafruit, we think machine learning should be accessible to everyone, that’s why today we are partnering with Lobe to bring you an easy to use machine learning kit, so you can bring your machine learning ideas to life.

Kailh Switch Sockets for MX-compatible Mechanical Keys – 20 Pack: Back in my day, if you wanted to make a mechanical keyboard, you had to solder in expensive Cherry MX switches onto your PCB – and woe to the person who decided they wanted to change their linear keys instead of clicky ones! Bah humbug, kids these days have no idea, what with their fancy Kailh Switch Sockets – they know nothing of suffering!

Translucent Keycaps for MX Compatible Switches – 10 pack: Get ready to clacky to your heart’s content. Here is a 10 pack of translucent keycaps for your next mechanical keyboard or NeoKey project. Snap ’em onto a Cherry MX or compatible switch to turn your Feather or breakout into the lil’est macro keypad. The translucent plastic makes for a glow-friendly switch.

NeoKey FeatherWing – Two Mechanical Key Switches with NeoPixels: The only thing better than a nice mechanical key, is two of them, and ones that also can glow any color of the rainbow – and that’s what the Adafruit NeoKey FeatherWing will let you do! This Wing plugs into any/all Feather main boards and can fit two Cherry MX or compatible switches to turn your Feather into the lil’est macro keypad.

Each Wing has two Kailh sockets, which means you can plug in any MX-compatible switches instead of soldering them in. You may need a little glue to keep the switches in place: hot glue or a dot of epoxy worked fine for us.

Beneath each switch is a reverse-mount NeoPixel pointing up through the spot where many switches would have an LED to shine though. The two pixels are chained together so you can control them as one 2-pixel NeoPixel strand.
