Hello everyone, welcome back. Today we have a classic Friday New Product Post. Be sure to watch the video for a very special announcement.
That’s right, this is my last post and video with SparkFun. I want to genuinely thank everyone who’s watched my videos and read my posts over the years. I never thought when I did my first product video back in 2010 that they would be anywhere near this popular. But let’s take a break from all the feels and talk about some new stuff we have for this week.
The Intel Edison has been a pretty popular product here. This week, we have a new block, the Power Block. It’s very similar to the Battery Block, but comes without a battery. This has a couple of benefits. Without the onboard battery, it makes stacking additional blocks possible since the height of the battery prevents stacking blocks on top. Also, it allows you to add a larger or smaller battery.
Need a cap? If you don’t now, you will soon. Check out the new capacitor kit, which includes a variety of values. Everything comes in a box to keep things organized and even has a guide on the sticker for identifying the values in the kit.
Be sure to watch the video, I talked about some of my favorite picks over the years. I didn’t include them in the post since they’re technically not new. I might make some future appearances at SparkFun, but I can’t make any promises. But if you want to see what I’m up to, you can always subscribe to my YouTube channel.
As always, thanks for reading and watching.
