Tindie, is of course the premier marketplace for indie electronics, but don’t forget to peruse the Flea Market section too. From time to time garages and offices need to be cleared out and the best place to find a new home for your projects and parts is Tindie’s Flea Market.
Here are some interesting items available for sale as of the end of June. As always, this section isn’t subject to the same guarantee as Tindie’s normal listings, as this section functions as sort of an online garage sale:
Lock Pick Training Kit
If you’d like to learn how to pick locks, what better way than actually being able to see the inner workings while attempting this mechanical hack? To help with this pursuit, this training lock is clear, and comes with a set of picks.
Sure, usually you wear glasses to protect your eyes from the sun, or correct your vision, but why does it have to be all about you? These RGB glasses allow you to program them to display light patterns for all the world to see!
SwitchiFy WiFi Home Automation Board
Home automation is great when you have your smartphone handy, but if you’re trying to integrate it with an existing 2-switch setup, things can get tricky. The SwitchiFy board, listed as “used,”allows you to still flip one of two switches to control lights or another appliance, and can take advantage of smartphone control when that’s available as well.
Trimmer Capacitor 10pF to 100pF
Trimmer capacitors are meant to calibrate equipment during manufacturing, analogous to the way a potentiometer is a variable resistor. If that sounds fascinating, be sure to check them out in this listing.
These are just the tip of the iceberg, head over and see for yourself!
