Happy Saturday – we are back with another weekly New Product Roundup! This week we have a couple new products for building your first robot, a sensor to help your plants from dying, and a couple new cables. We also have a new product of the week – let’s go have a look!
To start, we have the Adafruit CRICKIT for micro:bit – this is the perfect add-on for the BBC micro:bit and will have you building your first robot in no time! As always, this Adafruit board has an excellent set of resources. Continuing with the robot theme, we have a new continuous rotation servo – these make excellent drive systems for simple robots and don’t require complex motor controllers. We also have a new Soil Moisture Sensor from Adafruit, these are a capacitive designed sensor hand will not corrode over time in the damp ground. For the soil moisture sensor we also have a handy breakout cable that allows the soil moisture sensor to be connected to any standard male breakaway pins. Finally, we have fancy new multimeter leads with detachable alligator clip ends – a must have!
