New Product Roundup – October 7th to October 13th

Happy Saturday everyone! We are back with our New Product Roundup for October 6 – 13th. This week, everyone was a bit groggy from a Turkey hangover… but despite that, we have managed to get a bunch of new goodies added to the site. So what is new? Well, we have a DIY Generator Kit – this complete kit allows you to build your own hand powered generator (complete with tutorial!). There is also a new, smaller, pack of low cost alligator clips, and a new miniature On/Off Rocker Switch. Finally, we went a bit Third Hand crazy this week: the coolant tubes and alligator parts kits used to add additional arms to the SparkFun Third Hand Kit are now available (and the SparkFun Third Hand Kit is back in stock as well).
