3-Pin Wire Joints (3 Pack): These are the easiest way possible to connect two wires – no if’s, and’s, or butt’s! Well, actually, these are often referred to as wire butts ’cause you ‘butt’ two wires together (hey we didn’t come up with the name!) Butt seriously, folks! OK, so despite the humor, these are really handy. If you want to quickly prototype some wiring, skip the soldering and use these 3-Pin Wire Joints!

These connectors are super handy when your LED strip project requires interfacing bare wires, or maybe you want to extend some motor wires. Or really anything.

1N4148 SMT SOD-123 Diodes – 100 Pack: ou have some electrons over here, and you want them over there but you don’t want the electrons from over there to be able to come over here? That’s what a diode is for, these are directional current valves and have the benefit of being waaay smaller than vacuum tubes.

Classic 1N4148’s are great for any kind of small signal (not power!) rectification. Use them all the time, and they’re very popular with folks making keyboards, so they come in a pack of 100.

Switch Sockets for Kailh CHOC Compatible Keys – 10 Pack: Back in my day, if you wanted to make a mechanical keyboard, you had to solder in expensive key 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 Choc Switch Sockets – they know nothing of suffering!

With these sockets, mechanical keys can snap right in and are easily replaceable with no soldering at all. It’s almost too easy!

Kailh CHOC Low Profile Red Linear Key Switches – 10-pack: For crafting your very own custom keyboard, these Kailh Choc Low Profile Linear Red mechanical key switches are super slim, with ultra-low profile compared to MX compatible switches!

Please note these are NOT MX COMPATIBLE! They cannot be used in ‘MX’ sockets or PCBs or keycaps, the pin arrangement is totally different. That said, they are much lower profile, and quite lovely when you want a smooth linear keystroke without the chonk

Wi-Fi Add-on Board for Sony SPRESENSE iS110B: The Sony iS110B is a Wi-Fi Add-on board for SONY SPRESENSE. Low power consumption is realized by adopting Telit GS2200MIZ. Equipped with SPI (standard) and UART (optional) interfaces. In compliance with IEEE802.11b / g / n (2.4GHz), it supports Wi-Fi Direct and WPS as well as access point mode and station mode.

This add-on board is already equipped with a chip antenna, so you can use it immediately. Arduino example/library code is available here.

Sensor Add-on Board for Sony Spresense EVK-701: The Spresense Sensor Add-On Board adds 3 types of sensors essential for motion sensing (acceleration, barometric pressure, geomagnetism) to the GPS receiver and high-resolution audio decoding functions provided by the SPRESENSE board computer. In addition, the Sensor Expansion Connector makes it possible to add more than 7 types of sensors, including brightness, proximity, color, magnetic, temperature, UV, and heart rate (pulse wave) sensors.

64×32 RGB LED Matrix – 2.5mm pitch: Bring a little bit of Times Square into your home with this sweet 64 x 32 square RGB LED matrix panel. These panels are normally used to make video walls, here in New York we see them on the sides of busses and bus stops, to display animations or short video clips. We thought they looked really cool so we picked up a few boxes of them from a factory.

This version is the 2.5mm pitch 64×32 RGB LED Matrix. Please note you cannot use an Arduino UNO to drive this size, it’s way too big! Use an Arduino Mega, Raspberry Pi, BBB or other device that can handle displaying to RGB matricies and has plenty of RAM.

Etched Glow-Through Keycap with Open Source Hardware Gear Logo – MX Compatible Switches: Show off your open-source hardware flair with a super-classy, custom-made Open Source Hardware Gear Logo Etched Keycap. It’s made with a translucent/opaque plastic that is etched to create an elegant glow-through effect. Perfect to show your hacker/maker cred on your next mechanical keyboard project.

Snaps onto any Cherry MX or compatible switch. Since the logo is centered, you’ll get a glow whether you have north or south-facing switches. It’s R4 profile so will work nicely as a stand-alone key or at the top row of your keyboards.
