Products, products, products! We've got a whirlwind of new products this week, and a special guest engineer explaining his new shield. Check it out.
We’re still recovering from the flood of sales from Cyber Monday, but don’t worry, we’ve still got some new products this week. Also, thanks to all of our customers for your participation with Cyber Monday, it rocked!
I’ve been trying to get Nate to do a video for awhile. When his Weather Shield was ready to sell, I begged and pleaded. He begrudgingly agreed, so of course we made a pun out of his name. That’s how we roll.
Need a display for your BeagleBone Black? Check out the new capes from 4D Systems. They come in a 4.3" and 7" and turn your BBB into a color touchscreen. These are ideal for creating an integrated visual interface.
We’ve been selling the all-in-one Weather Board for some time now, but what if you want it in a shield? Introducing, the Weather Shield! It includes sensors for humidity, barometric pressure, temperature, and light. It even mates directly to our weather meters and a GPS module. We have a complete hookup guide to get you started too.
This classroom pack from Bare Conductive provides you with everything you need to teach and engage up to 30 participants of any age the basics of circuits and electricity through the use of electrically conductive paint and crafts. It includes 30 robot greeting cards, 10 conductive paint pens, and all the parts you need to complete all 30 greeting cards.
We have a new version of the sensor kit out this week. It includes a bunch of new sensors like the HTU21D, MPL3115A2, and many more! We’ve hand-picked our favorite sensors for the new version and even dropped the price. If you just NEED to sense something, this kit has your name all over it.
The wheel encoder kit from Dagu attaches to motor shafts and gives you the ability to detect wheel rotation for precise positioning. Magnetic discs attach to the motor’s shaft and have eight poles which are detected by hall-effect sensors. This is the easiest and most economical way to add an encoder to your robot. Each kit comes with everything you need for two wheels. These work great for the multi-chassis kits.
Lastly, we have another mis-ship. We normally carry common cathode 7-segment displays, but we got a shipment of common anode instead. So we have these 20mm red 7-segment displays while supplies last.
OK, that’s it for this week. Be sure to check back again next week because we’re going to have even more stuff, I promise. Thanks for reading and watching!
