NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK


Anodized Aluminum, Black or Purple Metal Keyboard Plate for 60% / GH60 Cases: If you want a nice solid feel to your DIY keeb, this metal plate will let you snap in all your MX-compatible key switches and hold them nice and solid. This is specifically designed for the common “GH60” / 60% keyboard layout.

Available in Aluminum, Black and Purple


Felt Padding for 60% / GH60 Keyboard Cases: This Felt Padding is for if you want extra cushioning for your DIY keeb. This is specifically designed for the common “GH60” / 60% keyboard layout.

Light Up Key Switch Keychains – MX Compatible Switches in White, Blue, Green, or Red: If you have one of our etched glow-through keycaps, this adorable, bite-sized Key Switch Keychain is the perfect accessory to show it off. It’s basically a satisfying clicky tactile key switch, with an LED and a CR1220 battery. Press the button to connect the LED to the battery and ka-pow! Your keycap lights up.

Availbe in White, Blue, Green, and Red


Strain Gauge Load Cell – 4 Wires – 5Kg – 80mm long: This 5 Kg Strain Gauge measures 80mm long and has the same functionality as the 75mm long version. We got a few of these when we ordered the 75mm version and rather than toss them we are offering them for sale at a discount!

Strain Gauge Load Cell – 4 Wires – 10Kg – 80mm long: This 10 Kg Strain Gauge measures 80mm long and has the same functionality as the 75mm long version. We got a few of these when we ordered the 75mm version and rather than toss them we are offering them for sale at a discount!

Small Lock-style Solenoid 6VDC @ 600mAh with 2-pin JST: Solenoids are basically electromagnets: they are made of a big coil of copper wire with an armature (a slug of metal) in the middle. When the coil is energized, the slug is pulled into the center of the coil. This makes the solenoid able to pull from one end.

Simple USB C Socket Breakout: This Simple USB Type C breakout is kinda interesting, it looks similar to this USB Type C SMT Inline Breakout Board, but it’s an ‘inline’ style with pads for soldering to the common USB 1.1/2.0 connections. We see this lil breakout used often in custom keyboards, it’s glued or wedged into the enclosure.

Tri-Color USB Controlled Hemisphere Alarm Light with Buzzer: With this Tri-Color USB Controlled Hemisphere Alarm Light with Buzzer, you can easily monitor and alert humanoids as to the status of a project, machine, or even if the bathroom is occupied!

Unlike our “12V” style tower lights, no wiring or microcontroller programming is required. It’s completely plug-and-play for use with any computer that has a USB port, even a Raspberry Pi SBC – so we recommend it when you just want to get something running and don’t want to noodle around with 12V power plugs and transistors.

Sealed Tri-Color USB Controlled Hemisphere Alarm Light: With this Sealed Tri-Color USB Controlled Hemisphere Alarm Light, you can easily monitor and alert humanoids as to the status of a project, machine, or even if the bathroom is occupied!

It’s a lot like our other alarm light but this one doesn’t come with a buzzer and in ‘exchange’ it has a sealed body which means it can be used in places with more dust and moisture. It doesn’t have an official IP rating, but we think it’s probably something like an IP65 (not including the USB connector which is not rated).

2.9″ Flexible 296×128 Monochrome eInk / ePaper Display – UC8151D Chipset: Woah, the cyber-future is here! Flexible E-Ink has been demo’d at high tech events for years but now you can actually get your paws on it. This display is true E-Ink / E-Paper, once an image is displayed it will stay even once you remove all power. The image is also high contrast and very daylight readable. It really does look just like printed paper!

This flexible display sports a 2.9″ monochrome (black and white) display. It has 296×128 black ink pixels on a white-ish background. The monochrome displays also take a lot less time to update, only a couple seconds instead of 15 seconds. Use a UC8151D chipset driver to control this display.

Small Inductive Coil and 10 Wireless LED Kit – 5V: Adding LEDs to anything makes it 5x better — it’s a scientific fact! But when you have LEDs, you’ve got wires and power supplies and all that stuff is kinda annoying. What if you could have LEDs that light up without any wires or soldering or battery packs? Sounds magical! That’s what makes this Small Inductive Coil and 10 Wireless LED Kit so nifty. It uses electromagnetic fields and inductive coupling to pass power through the air to light up lil LEDs soldered onto coils.

Each order comes with one driver board (you’ll need a 5V power supply to power it) and ten miniature LED inductors in an assortment of colors (two each of white, blue, yellow, green, and red)

Adafruit LED Glasses Front Panel – 116 RGB LEDs with I2C Driver – STEMMA QT / Qwiic: Have you always wanted to upgrade your ensemble with a creepy-cool creature PCB silkscreen and an eye-blistering arrangement of LEDs? We love to put NeoPixels on our face, as evidenced by our many glowy LED glasses projects. Each of these requires quite a bit of soldering, and the cost of each NeoPixel adds up quickly. So we wanted to make a PCB assembly that can be used by any microcontroller to make glamorous face-tronics.

Please note: You get one LED Glasses panel per order. The silkscreen selection is random per order; we can’t change or control which one you get!
The Adafruit LED Glasses Front Panel has 116 artfully arranged 2x2mm RGB LEDs, all controlled with an IS31FL3741 I2C Driver that handles all the PWMing, so it’s plug-and-play with almost any microcontroller.
