As long as you assess the risks, begin showing your interest gradually and remain respectful of unspoken boundaries, you have a shot at evolving your friendship into something deeper.
From Adafruit classics, to new favorites, Adafruit Kits & Projects are fun and exciting electronics projects for everyone from the amateur to the professional.
You’ve entered the dreaded “friend zone.” But before you despair, you should know that there’s a way out.
Just about all electronics use TTL serial for debugging, bootloading, programming, serial output, etc.
But it's rare for a computer to have a serial port anymore.
We suggest this module for those starting out as it is the easiest to get going: if there are two XBees in the same area they will automatically 'sync' and pass serial data back and forth without any additional work or configuration What we like about the...
When we were putting together the TV-B-Gone kit, we started imagining a dystopian future, filled with televisions, where this kit would be super useful and we'd be a hero for having one.
Essentially, its a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create different sounds.
The result is a fun toy that lets you draw musical instruments on any piece of paper.
So we went and got a whole mess of them custom made!
These tins are exactly the same shape and size as the old Altoids gum tins but they are blank and we got the bottom flattened instead of rounded (so it fits things better) Outside dimensions are: 1.43" x 3.35" x 0.8" Inside dimensions are: 1.40" x 3.30" Perfect for mintyboosts! This USB cable adds a DB9 serial port to your computer or laptop. Note that this provides (approximately) -10V serial (RS232) not 5V serial (TTL), good for old devices like GPS, handhelds, programmers, etc with chunky DB9's on the side. 1/2" diameter, 3/16" thick discs, south side is marked with a red line. If you have an aluminium frame, use tape/foamstickytape to attach it.
" Adafruit is currently shipping R3 of the Arduino Uno Interested in making neat stuff with an Arduino but not sure where to start? Originally this pack was designed to follow the introductory tutorials here on my site. Great for students and those that want to get their feet wet, no soldering required! The new Uno is the latest version after the Duemilanove, with an improved USB interface chip.
