A Sensory Bonanza

Sensors. They're FUN. So fun, in fact, we just added a metric crap-tonne (a completely legitimate scientific unit of measurement) of them to Solarbotics. What, you don't believe me? CHECK THIS ACTION OUT! We just added 4 categories, and we now have a total of 75 items available. Here's the full rundown of new stuff:

Force Sensors 

IESF-R-5 Pressure Sensor
Ultrasonic Sensors

BittyBot Sensors

BittyBot 2-Way Object Sensor Kit
Infra-Red Sensors

PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8Now, I know what you're thinking. "You FOOL! Those Phidgets sensors sure look incredible, but I don't have any cables to attach them with! And nothing to interface them to!" Well my good friend, we have you covered. Check no further than the Phidgets Sensor Cable, PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 and Phidgets White LCD with 8/8/8 Interface. "Hrm, not bad," you ponder, "but it sure would be nice if all those super cool, easy to use USB-goodness Phidgets items were grouped into the same category." Well you're in luck, because not only can we see the future, but we can read your mind. In the future. Which is now the past. Uh, yeah. PHIDGETS CATEGORY! Also, the MEGABitty Atmel Microcontroller Kit. It pretty much rounds out the BittyBot lineup - a bunch of super-small, super-compact, and (you guessed it) super-cool solutions for tiny robots. Aaaand that's it. Have a good weekend, everyone!
