The SpikenzieLabs Calculator Kit, is an electronics kit that makes a working pocket calculator that can add, subtract, multiply and divide. The electronics is easy to solder through-hole parts. Assembling the case is also part of the fun. It is a styly set of laser cut acrylic pieces.
The LSM303DLH is a triple axis accelerometer combined with a triple axis magnetic sensor. This breakout board uses the LSM303DLH to give a you the data you need to feed into a microcontroller and calculate tilt-compensated output.
We sure love the ATmega328 here at Adafruit, and we use them a lot for our own projects. The processor has plenty of GPIO, Analog inputs, hardware UART SPI and I2C, timers and PWM galore - just enough for most simple projects. When we need to go small, we use a Pro Trinket 3V or 5V, but when size isn't as much of a concern, and a USB-serial converter is...
if you're new to electronics and programming, the RedBoard Starter Kit is a great way for beginners to get their foot in the door. This little guy is essentially a mini SparkFun Inventor's Kit (minus the manual which you can find below) and can be taken straight out of the box
The TReX blends RC, analog, and serial inputs for a powerful motor control solution capable of delivering a continuous 13 A per motor. The TReX will work right out of the box as an electronic speed control (ESC), but its ability to seamlessly transition between RC/analog and serial control makes it capable of so much more!
The SparkPunk Kit is a sound generator made in the spirit of the Atari Punk Console. Rather than simply recreating the Atari Punk, the SparkPunk is a new design that springs from a similar foundation. It starts with a dual 555 timer IC, then adds a second tone source, sub-octaves and a bandpass filter.
The RN-52 Bluetooth from Roving Networks is an audio module that makes it simple for you to create a hands free audio system for your car or remote control your media center. With this breakout board we've made it easy for you to drop it into any project you could use it for. All pertinent headers are broken out and labeled for your convenience.
This shield gives the Arduino CAN-Bus capability. It uses the Microchip MCP2515 CAN controller with MCP2551 CAN transceiver. CAN connection is via a standard 9-way sub-D for use with OBD-II cable. Ideal for automative CAN application. The shield also has a uSD card holder, serial LCD connector and connector for an EM406 GPS module.
This tracked chassis from Dagu Electronics makes a great base for building a small, tank-like RC vehicle or autonomous robot. The chassis includes a battery holder and two DC motors, with an independent drive train for each tread, so all you need to add to make a complete robot is a robot controller and the sensors of your choosing. A unique mechanism...
