Products and puppies, what more could you ask for?Favorited Favorite 1
This week we're going to do something a bit different. Instead of a traditional Friday New Product Post video, we have two separate demo videos. But don't worry, not only does one video contain a beard, but it also has some puppies in it. So, here are the new products for this week.
The Touch Board from Bare Conductive is an easy-to-use Arduino@Heart board that gives you the ability to turn almost any material or surface into a sensor. Each Touch Board offers 12 electrodes for your a conductive ink or other type of connector that can be drawn or attached to create light switches, musical instruments, or custom interactive surfaces all through the Arduino IDE. Instead of just talking about it, why not show how it works!? Check out our demo video below.
Cable carriers are like flexible hollow chains that allow you to run wires on moving surfaces without worrying about kinking or damaging your cables. They are common in automation equipment, CNC machines, and 3D printers. This cable carrier is 0.5M long and has an internal dimension of 10x15mm. Want to see know more? Want to look at cute puppies? Check out the video below.
What can you do with the Raspberry Pi, the inexpensive credit card-sized computer? All sorts of things! If you’re learning how to program, or looking to build new electronic projects, Getting Started with Raspberry Pi will show you just how valuable this flexible little platform can be. This is the 2nd edition.
Need to add some power to a breadboard? Thhe SparkFun Breadboard Power Supply Sticks come in two types, a 5V/3.3V, and a 3.3V/1.8V. You connect a input voltage of 6-12V, and it will provide the necessary voltage you need. There's a switch on the board for selecting between the two voltage. It even has headers on the corners for plugging directly into a breadboard's power rails.
That's it for this week. Don't forget that tomorow is Pi day, and we have a pretty cool promotion going on, so be sure to check back on 3/14 for special deals. Thanks for watching and see you next week!
