Hello again loyal SparkFun readers. We just have a few products this week, but they're good products (they're always good right?). Let's check out the video.
I don't recommend running a quadcopter like that. No injuries were sustained, but it got pretty close to me a few times, and once it gets a taste for blood, watch out! Here are your new products for this week:
We have the 9DoF Razor IMU back in stock! This new version trades in the LY530ALH and LPR530ALH gyros for a single ITG-3200 triple-axis gryo. This makes the board a lot smaller while maintaining the same functionality. If you're looking for a small and powerful IMU, you should really check out this board.
The AttoPilot boards provide a simple solution for reading voltage and current into your microcontroller. Now in addition to the 90A version, we also have 45A and 180A versions as well. Voltage and current values are easily read into your favorite microcontroller and we've included example code for Arduino on the product pages.
So, you've seen our tutorials, watched some of our videos and think it's time to try your hand at e-textiles. However, most of the books and tutorials out there are focused heavily on non-wearable technology, so a lot of the information doesn't directly apply to you. Thankfully, Open SoftWear is a book that explains Arduino and various other electronics with direct focus on e-textiles. This book gives you the basics to start with your own wearable projects.
And finally, we have a new version of our ClockIt kit. The new version now has a red PCB (hooray!) and uses a different display. All the functions and layout remain the same however. These kits are always very popular at Maker Faires and soldering workshops and are a great way to get introduced to soldering.
That's all the new stuff we have for this week. We have some more neat stuff for next week, so definitely check back. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
