We really like you, so we're making it easier to find what you're looking for

  • micro:bits are tough to keep a steady supply in-stock to meet the demand for them at the moment. We do however have the micro:bit Go Bundle in stock for just a few bucks more. It includes the micro:bit as well as a battery pack, batteries, and a USB cable.

  • This is true, we try and be mindful of data usage and page load time for mobile version. You can also find each sale on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).

  • I was able to hit the play button under the large image on the link to get it to play.

  • I appreciate the kind words! As for powering up the project I’ll be using just a wall adapter for when it’s actually being used at home. The battery pack you see in the video was used so we could easily move it around for filming. I really don’t know how long they would last. The RTC uses a small coin cell on the back that says it last a minimum of 9 years and only needs set once. I do however like reaching out via the ESP32 to get the time. Just getting started with electronics you certainly find out quickly that the amount of features you could add never seems to end!

    As for the #include statements it was an issue with me mixing some html with markdown. It should be fixed now.

  • Good advice as always and I appreciate the kind words!

    I’ve never worked with a Teensy as I’m still very new to all of this. To be completely honest, this was pretty much the first time I’ve done a project that wasn’t part of our SIK guide. Still learning but having a lot of fun as well.

  • There are ways to do this and one of the most-used methods is called lazy loading. This may be something we look into in the future. At this point we’ve yet to look into how big of an implementation it would be for our site.

  • Just wanted to let you know that we’ve added a link inside the wishlist button dropdown to see all your wishlists. After your comment, we really realized that it was a little difficult to get to your wishlists since we removed it from the primary navigation. Enjoy!

  • We appreciate the feedback and understand that not everyone will be thrilled with the new changes. We wanted to give each product a feel for consistently to find what you need. If you are used to searching to find the datasheets, just know that now they will always be right under the documents tab. As for the mobile view we’ve found that most screens will show all the information under the tabs at the same vertical location with minimal scrolling.

  • Hi Bryan! I appreciate the feedback and your concerns are valid. We know that change is hard, but we appreciate having you as a customer and hope that you get used to the new changes!

    A big challenge with a website having a website with over 2000 products is building consistency. One of the main things we wanted to accomplish with the new layout was to give every piece of information about the product shown it’s own specific area that you can consistently go to to find what you need. If you come to our site and want to see the documents of the product, you know there is a tab for it. Same said with the “Product Help and Resources” section. For many products this section is much more than just the “Skills Needed”. It includes Videos, Tutorials, Hackster Projects, Support Tips, and anything else that previously may have been lost in the single column with all the other information.

    As for the comments and reviews, they can always be jumped to quickly by clicking on the star rating (if there is one). When doing our research we found that it’s pretty common practice for customer comments and reviews to be at or near the bottom for e-commerce sites of our magnitude.

  • Thanks for the comment. We haven’t really changed anything in the way that wishlists work, just the location of the button. If you hadn’t noticed it’s now above the large image. We’ll soon have a link put in that dropdown list so that you can access all your wishlists a little quicker as well. Hope that helps you out!
