Didel Gears, LilyPad

Alriiiight. This week we've got a small handful of new plastic pinions (not to be confused with plastic onions) from Didel. These little units are great for sliding onto pager motors and mating to other gears.

And, as promised last week, we've got more Arduino-type-stuff for you to check out. These week we've populated the LilyPad category with eight items. As worded by the official description, "LilyPad is a wearable technology developed by Leah Buechley and cooperatively designed by Leah and SparkFun. Each LilyPad was creatively designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available. They're even washable!". Neat stuff! Check out our selection below:LilyPad Arduino Main Board

Well, that about sums it up for another week. I'd just like to take this opportunity on behalf of all the staff at Solarbotics to bid farewell to Mary. She's been a fantastic getter-of-things-done (official title: Office Elf, Third Class (Promotion Pending)) and a joy to work with. We wish her all the best with that education/school thing that seems to be all the rage with kids these days. Good luck Mary, you'll be missed!

Wednesday Links: 3D Weaving, Lasercut Go...

Another Wednesday brings another dose of links. What's new about that? Links themselves, I guess. Time-lapse Panoramas We've all seen panoramas like that - but the video at the end of the post is really worth watching (Via Geek.com) 3D Weaving Regular weaving is complex, imagine weaving in three dimensions! And the machine that does […]

Sherline Closing Sale

Because we use their great products while making robots, we've also carried Sherline products almost since we started Solarbotics. But the time has come to start cutting things that aren't core to our business, and the Sherline machine tools definitely take valuable time from open-source hardware hacking, lasering, and pick'n'placing. For 1 week only, we're […]
