The Floppy Disk Boombox – Retro cool!!

Fantastic project video from YouTube user Techmoan. A look at the Roland MT-80S – A ‘Music Tutor’ device that’s still great fun, even for non musicians. Used Roland MT devices on ebay: Focus/Sound There are a couple of sound and focus issues with this video. The cinematographer and sound technician have been spoken to…

Sorry about the long pause between video postings. I’ve some difficulties with my Video Editing software and post-production process. I finally broke down asked for some help from someone who does this all the time. It was well worth the pizza and beer.

Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 Breakout

Add the Internet to your next project with an adorable, bite-sized WiFi microcontroller, at a price you like! The ESP8266 processor from Espressif is an 80 MHz microcontroller with a full WiFi front-end (both as client and access point) and TCP/IP stack with DNS support as well. While this chip has been very popular, it’s also been very difficult to use. Most of the low-cost modules are not breadboard friendly, don’t have an onboard 500mA 3.3V regulator or level shifting, and aren’t CE or FCC emitter certified….UNTIL NOW!

Each module comes pre-loaded with NodeMCU’s Lua interpreter (NodeMCU 0.9.5 build 20150318 / Lua 5.1.4 to be specific), you can run commands, and ‘save’ Lua programs directly to the module’s Flash using a USB-Serial converter cable. But, if you’d like, you can skip Lua and go direct to using the Arduino IDE. Once you download the ESP8266 core, you can treat it just like a microcontroller+WiFi board, no other processors needed!
Adafruit TV BeGone TV-B-Gone Kit – Universal v1.2

When we were putting together the TV-B-Gone kit, we started imagining a dystopian future, filled with televisions, where this kit would be super useful and we’d be a hero for having one. And while maybe that’s dramatic, the TV-B-Gone is perfect for playing pranks on your friends during the Super Bowl or getting some peace and quiet during dinner.
Feather Stacking Headers – 12-pin and 16-pin female headers

These two Female Stacking Headers alone are, well, lonely. But pair them with any of our Feather boards and you’re in business!
What do they do? They stack. Put the headers through your Feather and then you can not only plug them into a solderless breadboard, but you could attach circuitry on top as well
