Black Friday is approaching meaning millions of people will rush to their nearest retail outlet, wallet in hand. Instead of buying stuff you don’t really want or need (like a WiFi enabled toaster or something). Consider using Tindie to get the unique hardware you just won’t get on any of those big retail sites. If you are an electronics nerd or are buying a gift for one, Tindie is a goldmine of cool stuff that make for great gifts.
This Black Friday, dozens of Tindie Sellers
are offering deals. Scroll down to see them all.
To give you little taste of what is available:
Working on something over the holidays or making a gift? Whatever chip you want to work with, there’s an excellent chance there’s a Tindie seller that has a dev board built around it. There are many and varied Arduino boards and shields like the GAMBY for retro-gaming, the Audio Hacker kit for real-time audio processing, and even a solderless Arduino clone. With pulse sensors, speed sensors, and hundreds of IC parts to tinker with you’ll never get bored. Teensy users should check out 3 for 2 on breakout boards!
Thinking about making something for your home? A great beginners project is a unique clock using a Crazy Clock mechanism, or more experienced hobbyists can completely automate with this modular wireless system.
Looking for something ready to go right out of the box? Try the p@ss™ Mark II password key fob, Chirp for plants, UV-badge, or the Arduino Enigma I. Alternatively, the RC2014 is a great well documented homebrew computer kit to put together.
That is just the tip of the iceberg. For cool electronics you won’t find anywhere else, Tindie is the only place to go!
