Adafruit MONSTER M4SK

Adafruit MONSTER M4SK

The Adafruit MONSTER M4SK is a fun microcontroller platform aimed at building costumes or decorations. The first thing you’ll notice is that the shape of the PCB is cat-eye glasses, only instead of lenses there are two 240×240 TFT displays. The default program on the board puts animated eyes on those two displays and has […]

Adafruit MagTag

Adafruit MagTag

The Adafruit MagTag might just contain everything that you ever wanted in an e-Ink refrigerator magnet. First, the display itself is a comfortable 2.9″ presenting a 298x128x4 grayscale image. The 4-level grayscale is an excellent design choice, allowing improved image rendering while keeping display updates at about one second (Tri-color black, white, red displays often […]

Adafruit Metro ESP32-S2

Adafruit Metro ESP32-S2

The Adafruit Metro ESP32-S2 packages the best features of Adafruit’s recent microcontroller boards in a traditional Arduino Uno form factor. The heart of the board, the Espressif ESP32-S2, improves on the ESP line of Wi-Fi-enabled microcontrollers by adding native USB support. The addition of USB mass storage to the platform allows drag-and-drop deployment of Adafruit’s […]
