Friday New Product: Cables, Imps, and Ar...

Solar botics
December 28, 2012

Although according to some sources Canadians in general (and Solarbotics in particular) have long since gone into hibernation, some autonomous robots (or Russians) are still purchasing new product and producing content, through some coincidence of stray electric impulses. Among the wandering flickering lights of deserted offices, with Canadians gently tucked away in the corners and wrapped in cozy blankets under their desks until the next year, only roombas gently buzz away on their cleaning duties while lonely Russians on duty poke random keys on the keyboard to bring you the last new product of 2012.

But before that, just a quick reminder that Solarbotics will be closed on January 1st. Even Russians need to get in their yearly dose of sleep.

SparkFun Cerberus USB Cable - 6ft
$5.95
The Cerberus, it sounds really smart, and it really is! It provides a great solution for the age old problem of never having the right USB cable. This is a 3 in 1 USB cable that has a Mini-B, Micro-B and Standard-B on one side to a single USB-A male connector on the other.
SparkFun Hydra Power Cable - 6ft
$4.95
Behold, the Hydra! It doesn't have seven heads as you might expect, nor is it even a dragon, but it is a great way to get 5V to your project via 3 separate power connections broken out from a USB-A male connector.
Electric Imp Breakout
$12.95
If you aren't familiar with the Electric Imp, it essentially provides an easy, integrated way to connect almost any hardware device both to other WiFi enabled devices and to internet services.
Electric Imp Shield
$19.95
So you have an Electric Imp (or plan on buying one), what's next? Well you're going to need a breakout for it, here's where the Electric Imp Shield comes in. This shield gives you to the interface to adapt an Arduino-compatible board to a WiFi enabled Cortex-M3 core development module.
Beginning Arduino by Michael McRoberts
$29.99
Work your way through an amazing set of 50 cool Arduino projects with Beginning Arduino! Absolutely no experience in programming or electronics required. This book will guide you from start to finish with Arduino programming and electronics knowledge & skills.

Also, with all the hibernation shticks happening all over the place, we are forgetting to wish you a Happy New Year and Happy Apocalypse, using the "happy" descriptor mainly because it never happened, unless we are missing something, being so deep in our winter slumber.
