New for this week, Chibitronics Circuit Stickers, check out the demo video.
Hello everyone, I’m back to talk to you all about the new stuff we have for this week. We have a new type of product this week, so let’s dive right in and talk about what circuit stickers are.
The Chibitronics Circuit Stickers are exactly what they sound like. Well, the circuit sticker part anyways. They are stickers that can be used in conjunction with copper tape to create working circuits. Inside each Circuit Stickers Starter Kit is everything you need to set up simple LEDs, Switches, and Sensors with only a bit of knowledge on how electricity works and a little ingenuity! With this starter kit no soldering or sewing is required, simply peel each LED sticker and place them in specific areas designated in the included guide sketchbook and watch your creation glow. Check them out in action:
In addition to the starter kit, there are also add-on kits. The LED Effects Add-On Kit provides you with five unique stickers to make your LEDs blink, twinkle, and generally effect the way you experience them. Each kit features one twinkle, heartbeat, blink, and fade circuit sticker and adds their respective effect to your paper circuit project. Like the LED stickers you won’t need to worry about any soldering, sewing, or coding. Just peel, stick, and you’ll add some awesome effects to your LEDs in no time!
The Color LED Add-On Kit is a set of 24 individual red, yellow, and blue LEDs that offers a conductive adhesive backing that can be attached to just about any surface and powered by a simple coin cell battery. That’s right, no soldering, no sewing, and no coding. Just peel, stick, and you’ll have a set of glowing white LEDs in no time!
That’s all we have for this week. We have lots of new products in the works, so be sure to check back next week, we’ll have something new for you. The next month or two will prove to be pretty cool for new stuff, so be sure to check back. Thanks for reading!
A look at implementing the Arduino blink.ino sketch as an explicit state machine. To further explore state machines, an alarm clock state diagram is drawn and implemented.
We want to update our customers on where we stand with the on-going Arduino saga.

It's been a really slow week for new products so let's take a look at a few revs and a few older parts from the catalog.
