The famous TV-B-Gone allows you to turn off any TV anywhere. $20 + sales tax
The Minty Boost is a popular USB charger, named for the Altoids (or, in our case, Penguin Mints) case. $20 + sales tax
If you'd like to give the Arduino a try, this Arduino-compatible kit is breadboard friendly and programmable via a USB cable. You don't need a special programmer, and the Arduino IDE really helps with the learning curve of getting started programming microcontrollers and using them in projects. $25 + sales tax
A fun programmable LED matrix. Programmable, so you can make it display scrolling messages or animations. To program it, instead of connecting it directly to your computer using old fashioned 'wires' - the board is held up directly to your computer screen, and an easy-to-use web page will 'blink' in the text or image you want.
$25 + sales tax
Very complete and easy to follow instructions are available on the adafruit web site. You can also bring the kits to Bloominglabs public meetings to work on – if you have questions or need help there's usually somebody there who can lend a hand.
We accept cash, checks, paypal (to firstname.lastname@example.org) and credit cards. $1.50 will be added to credit card purchases to cover the fee charged by Square.
