This straight bar load cell (sometimes called a strain gauge) can translate up to 5kg of pressure (force) into an electrical signal. Each load cell is able to measure the electrical resistance that changes in response to, and proportional of, the strain (e.g. pressure or force) applied to the bar. With this gauge you will be able to tell just how heavy an object is, if an object's weight changes over time, or if you simply need to sense the presence of an object by measuring strain or load applied to a surface.
The EX8029 Stereo Camera from eYs3D is a depth-map imager controller and patterned IR illuminator capable of both color and point map output modes. Thanks to its dual cameras, this Stereo Camera is ideally used in applications involving motion and gesture control, field mapping, and 3D scanning. The best part about this module is the fact that it has been designed to be as straight forward and easy to use as possible for a stereo camera. Simply plug in the included USB 3.0 cable download the required files and start seeing things through the eyes of your new camera!
The SparkFun gator:starter ProtoSnap is one of a series of gator-clippable accessories called gator:boards that have been created to directly interface with the micro:bit or to other micro controllers! The gator:starter ProtoSnap provides you with a starting point to go beyond the capabilities of the micro:bit, with three different boards that can be kept as a whole or broken apart for individual use!
The Intel® RealSense Depth Camera has been designed to equip devices with the ability to see, understand, interact with, and learn from their environment. The D415 includes ready-to-use cameras that can be easily added to your existing prototypes via USB, Depth Modules that can be integrated directly into product designs, Vision Processors and Vision Processor Cards to process the raw data from the RealSense Cameras, and Intel® RealSense SDK (Software Development Kit), an open source, cross platform Development Suite including libraries, rappers, sample code, and tools.
The SparkFun gator:control ProtoSnap is one of a series of gator-clippable accessories called gator:boards that have been created to directly interface with the micro:bit or to other micro controllers! The gator:control ProtoSnap offers a handful of ways to interact with projects you create using only gator-clip cables. Each little board on this ProtoSnap can be kept as a whole while on the board or broken apart for individual use!
The SPI Buffer Saver is a hardware solution to an interesting problem. In short the standard Arduino SPI library includes a method to transfer out an array (or buffer) but the contents are replaced by whatever data is on the MOSI line at that time. This is problematic when using the SPI hardware to control things like displays or addressable LED strips because it requires you to re-set the data in the array each time. You can read more about the inspiration for this board here.
No longer do you need to worry about what supplies to purchase to prepare for your next electric paint project. The Touch Board Pro Kit from Bare Conductive includes the tools you need to prototype and make everything from interactive wallpaper and talking murals to innovative musical instruments.
