Adafruit 2.9″ Tri-Color eInk / ePaper Display FeatherWing – SSD1675 – Red Black White

Easy e-paper comes to your Feather with this breakout that’s designed to make it a breeze to add a tri-color 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!

We’ve liked these displays for a long time, so wouldn’t a custom e-paper FeatherWing with buttons make a ton of sense? This ‘Wing is tested to work with all of our Feathers, from the ESP8266 to the M0. It has built-in memory buffering so it can work with chips as small as the ’32u4 and ‘328. It does use a lot of pins: the 3 SPI pins, and up to 4 control pins to manage the SD card slot and SRAM. Plus 3 optional buttons are available for Feathers with available pins.

Browndages Adult-Size Bandages – 20 Bandages in 4 Tones

Browndages is the brainchild of husband and wife duo, Rashid and Intisar. In their house, with three children, they went through bandages as quick as they could buy them.

Rashid had the idea to produce a bandage that matches the varying shades of brown, not only in their family but throughout the world.
Intisar took it one step further and decided to also produce a bandage with images that would be both representative for their children, and inspirational.
Thus, Browndages was born!

The hope is that Browndages will become a household name for your family and also serve as positive inspiration for your children.

Adafruit NeoPixel Slim LED Dot Strand – 20 LEDs at 2″ Pitch – 1 meter

For folks who like the LED Dots NeoPixel variants, with lights connected by a flexible cable, we now have a version that’s even easier to integrate. This is a meter-long Adafruit NeoPixel Slim LED Dot Strand! Attaching NeoPixel strips to your costume can be a struggle as the flexible PCBs can crack when bent too much. So how to add little dots of color? Use this stranded NeoPixel that uses soft plastic cords of plated wire! They’re very small, so they’re easy to embed into any structure, costume, or wearable. The wires can be sewn over, or embedded in a casting.

The strip is made of soft plastic wires with a coated NeoPixel every ~50mm (~2 inches) with a total of 20 LEDs. These are somewhat weatherproof with PVC coating on the wires and epoxy dots over the LEDs, they’ll put up with temporary outdoor use but we still don’t recommend you wash them or dunk them underwater. You can cut the strand pretty easily with wire cutters..

ESP32-S3-DevKitC-1-N8R2 – ESP32-S3-WROOM-1 – 8MB Flash 2MB PSRAM

The ESP32-S3-DevKitC-1 is an entry-level development board equipped with ESP32-S3-WROOM-1, a general-purpose Wi-Fi + Bluetooth LE MCU module that integrates complete Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE functions. This version is equipped with the ESP32-S3-WROOM-1 (PCB antenna) with 8MB Flash and 2 MB PSRAM.

Please note: The S3 is similar to the ESP32-S2 – but adds a dual core and Bluetooth LE (not classic!) However, there is minimal support for this dev board. For example, as of the time of this writing, there is no Arduino or CircuitPython support – only ESP IDF! Please purchase if you’re doing development with the S3, and OK with stuff not working 100% out of the box.

ESP32-S3-DevKitM-1-N8 – ESP32-S3-MINI-1 Dev Board – 8 MB Flash

Most of the I/O pins on the module are broken out to the pin headers on both sides of this board for easy interfacing. Developers can either connect peripherals with jumper wires or mount ESP32-S3-DevKitM-1 on a breadboard.

At the core of the module is an ESP32-S3FN8, an Xtensa® 32-bit LX7 CPU that operates at up to 240 MHz. You can power off the CPU and make use of the low-power co-processor to constantly monitor the peripherals for changes or crossing of thresholds.

ESP32-S3-DevKitC-1-N8 – ESP32-S3-WROOM-1 Dev Board – 8MB Flash

ESP32-S3FN8 integrates a rich set of peripherals including SPI, LCD, Camera interface, UART, I2C, I2S, remote control, pulse counter, LED PWM, USB Serial/Jtag, MCPWM, SDIO host, GDMA, TWAI® controller (compatible with ISO 11898-1, i.e. CAN Specification 2.0), ADC, touch sensor, temperature sensor, timers, and watchdogs, as well as up to 45 GPIOs. It also includes a full-speed USB 1.1 On-The-Go (OTG) interface to enable USB communication

There are three mutually exclusive ways to provide power to the board:

Adafruit NeoSlider I2C QT Slide Potentiometer with 4 NeoPixels – STEMMA QT / Qwiic

Our family of I2C-friendly user interface elements grows by one with this new product that makes it plug-n-play-easy to add a 75mm long slide potentiometer to any microcontroller or microcomputer with an I2C port.

Each breakout is 3″ long and 0.8″ wide, with a single linear slide pot in the center. Underneath, there are four under-lighting NeoPixels that can display any RGB color. In the middle, a small microcontroller takes I2C commands and converts them to analog reads (of the potentiometer) and NeoPixel control. Goes great with our Stemma QT rotary encoder and 1×4 NeoKey QT breakout.

Thanks to the Stemma QT / Qwiic connectors underneath, you can easily connect using QT cables – no soldering required! There’s even four I2C selection jumpers that you can cut to change the address from the default 0x30 to any value up to 0x3F so up to 16 slide pots can all share one chained cable.
