New Product Friday: Time for New Stuff


Hello everyone, we're back again this week as always with more new products. Watch out, we've got you covered!


Vimeo version found here.

Nathan and a few others consistently wear their BigTime watches and are always giving them away to people that are intrigued by them. Never have we had a product that has created so much interest from people on the street.

Spikenzie Labs came out with a new version of their Solder:Time watch kit. The Solder:Time II now features an LED matrix instead of the 7-segment display used on their original (as well as on our own BigTime Watch Kit). In addition they've redesigned the case and added a couple interesting new features like SMD components and a slot in the back for an FTDI.

 

Need a way to reprogram your project without breaking the seal on your water-tight enclosure? This panel-mount USB connector has a USB B connector on one side and a 0.1" spaced row of pins on the other. Screw it into your panel and use the mating cap to make a water-tight seal. Unscrew the cap to access the USB connector without opening up your enclosure!

 

We also have a new version of our sensor kit available this week. We've changed out the old BMP085 with the new version. The sensor kit gives you all the main sensors you would ever need. Detect light, vibration, flex, humidity, distance, motion, acceleration, and more! We've handpicked our favorite sensors and included them all in this kit.

 

Lastly, we now have 10-pin stackable headers for use with Arduino R3 boards and shields. The Uno R3 added a couple of extra pins on the board, so now you need a 10-pin header instead of an 8-pin (assuming you want to take advantage of the extra pins). Check back next week, we should have the full header kit in stock as well.

So, that's all for this week. Thanks for reading!

  • Next time: ABS extruder!

    Please?

  • I love it - the tyrannical monopoly of the absurd is broken; arduinii no longer have a single footprint; they now have several horrid and senseless feetprint.

    get real, get .1 already.

  • dangerous, irresponsible pranks > periodic puns

  • Sorry i have not ordered anything in a while… I will be buying soon!

  • “so now you need a 10-pin header instead of an 8-pin ”

    Technically you need a 10-pin header instead of one of the 6-pin headers. For an Uno it is now 1x10 + 1x6 + 2x8, whereas it used to be 2x6 + 2x8. Just saying :D

    • well, TECHNICALLY, it replaces an 8-pin header, but one of the 6 pin headers turns into an 8 as well :-)

      • I suppose. I was thinking it replaces the 6pin header in your shopping cart when you’re buying them B)

        • Speaking of which, it might be time to change the Arduino Stackable Header Kit ( https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10007) to include the 10 pin instead of the 6 pin connector.

          • we’re carrying both side by side. the majority of people still have older arduinos (I would suspect) as well as our pros and such. we’ll be carrying both. the new one will be labeled with “R3” and will be specifically for the newer R3 boards.

        • Yes, very true. Soon enough we will have the packs, so you can just buy them all at once.
