  • Crumble Controller (CRUMBLE)
    The Crumble is a cheap, easy-to-use electronics controller. A few ‘croc’ leads and a USB cable are all you need to connect motors, LEDs and sensors and begin experimenting. No programming experience is required as the FREE software is a graphical, drag-and-drop system inspired by MIT Scratch.

    Crumble Getting Started Guide


    The Crumble is an easy-to-use programmable controller. It can drive 2 motors forwards and backwards at variable speeds. It has 4 IO (Input/Output) pads which allow connections to switches, LDRs, low power LEDs and so on.

    Basic Connections

    The Crumble has been designed to encourage tinkering, using ‘croc leads’ for quick and simple connections. Pads allow terminal blocks to be fitted or a direct solder connection made, while the larger 4mm holes make an easy target for conductive thread and needle.

    Crumble with croc leads

    The Crumble software runs on PC, Mac and, in the near future, Linux (including the Raspberry Pi). Inspired by MIT Scratch, programs are simply built by snapping blocks together on screen. Sending a program to the Crumble is almost instant, allowing rapid experimentation.

    The Crumble can be extended with digitally controlled full-colour LED, called Sparkles. Additionally, several expansions board (Crumbs) are also in the works.

  • Bit:Bot Robot for BBC Micro:Bit (BitBot for MicroBit) (BITBOT)
    Bit:Bot Fully Integrated Robot for the BBC Micro:Bit

    NB. BBC Micro:Bit is NOT included unless specifically selected with the checkbox

    This (almost) ready-assembled robot requires no soldering, no wires and nothing more than a screwdriver to complete it.

    The Bit:Bot fully engages children and adults alike, allowing you to explore and code the BBC Micro:Bit using any of the languages available (not all features are supported in all languages)

    Learn here how to control the Bit:Bot with your Bluetooth phone

     *NEW* There is now a Microsoft PXT package for Bit:Bot (thanks to Sten Roger Sandvik, @stenrs on Twitter). Go to the Advanced tab or the Tools gear icon and select Add Package, then search for BitBot
     

    Check out these features:
    • 2 micro-metal gear motors. Both fully controllable in software, for both speed (0 to 100%) and direction (forward or reverse)
    • Wheels with rubber tyres for maximum grip
    • Really smooth metal ball front caster
    • 12 mini neopixels in 2 sets of 6 along the arms either side. Select any colour for any pixel, produce stunning lighting effects as your Bit:Bot moves around
    • 2 digital line following sensors. Code your own line-following robots and race them to see whose code produces the fastest lap time!
    • 2 analog light sensors (front left and front right) so your Bit:Bot can be programmed to follow a light source such as a torch, or you could code it to go and hide in the darkest place it can find
    • Buzzer, so you can make beeping sounds whenever you want
    • Powered from integrated 3xAA battery holder with on/off switch and blue indicator LED
    • Easily plug your BBC micro:bit in and out using the edge connector
    • Extension port for addition neopixels (such as McRoboFace)
    • Expansion connections at the front for additional sensors (Ultrasonic rangefinder available now, more in development)
    Optionally, you can add an Ultrasonic Distance Sensor (rangefinder) module. The sensor can be either soldered to the module, or connected via a socket. No soldering is required for either version. The socketed version makes it easier to connect a micro-USB lead to the Micro:Bit, but the soldered version is more robust.

    We also have an option for a pen holder that is fitted at the back. This can be plain, or have LEDs on to create a glow ring effect around the pen

  • SD Card Slot for Raspberry Pi Replacement (RPISD)
    You can use these card slots to replace broken SD slots on your Raspberry Pi.

    Technique:
    • Use side-cutters to cut all the pins on the old socket
    • Use a soldering iron to remove what's left of the pins to ensure each pad is clean
    • Use a sharp knife to cut off the 2 mounting lugs on the back of the new socket
    • Plase the new socket very carefully so the front of the socket is fractionally behind the edge of the Raspberry Pi board and central between the two front solder pads (there will be a small gap to these mounting pads
    • Solder one front mounting pad and check the SD socket is still positioned correctly
    • Solder the remainder of the pins and mounting positions as shown in the photos

  • Adafruit USB LiPo Charger (ADA-CHGLIPO)
    Adafruit Micro LiPo - USB LiIon/LiPoly Charger

    Oh so adorable, this is the tiniest little lipo charger, so handy you can keep it any project box! Its also easy to use. Simply plug in the gold plated contacts into any USB port and a 3.7V/4.2V lithium polymer or lithium ion rechargeable battery into the JST plug on the other end. There are two LEDs - one red and one green. While charging, the red LED is lit. When the battery is fully charged and ready for use, the green LED turns on. Seriously, it could not get more easy.

    Charging is performed in three stages: first a preconditioning charge, then a constant-current fast charge and finally a constant-voltage trickle charge to keep the battery topped-up. The charge current is 100mA by default, so it will work with any size battery and USB port. If you want you can easily change it over to 500mA mode by soldering closed the jumper on the back, for when you'll only be charging batteries with 500mAh size or larger.

    For use with Adafruit LiPoly/LiIon batteries only! Other batteries may have different voltage, chemistry, polarity or pinout.
    • Comes assembled and tested with a free bonus JST cable!
    • 5V input via PCB-style USB connector
    • For charging single Lithium Ion/Lithium Polymer 3.7/4.2v batteries (not for older 3.6/4.1v cells)
    • 100mA charge current, adjustable to 500mA by soldering a jumper closed
    • Free 2-pin JST cable included!
    Batteries not included.
