EVB: Replace the brain of your LEGO® EV3 with BeagleBone

EVB is a shield (or called cape) for Beaglebone Black (BBB). It fully support LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 system, either the hardware and software! EVB is compatible with all LEGO® sensors just like the EV3 Brick, 100% compatible! It allows the EV3 VM to be run on the Beaglebone Black. What powerful is, with extra Sensor Board in EVB system, you can do more! This means you can add more sensors to your LEGO® system... (From $59 and end Jan 26)

 

X PlusOne: Your Ultimate Hover + Speed Aerial Camera Drone

The X PlusOne takes off, hovers, and lands like a traditional quadcopter, but that's where the similarities with a multi-rotor stop.  The key differentiator is this: In place of the quadcopter frame is an upward facing wing.  This allows the X PlusOne to pitch over 90 degrees and fly nose-first at over 60 mph (100 km/h), twice as fast as a traditional quadcopter!  Flight control is handled by varying motor speed to provide pitch, roll, and yaw control, even in forward flight mode.  There are no traditional flight control surfaces on the X PlusOne.  Thereby saving weight and complexity and ensuring the overall design remains clean and efficient... ($479 for drone and camera. Ends Jan 14)

 

The ProtoCam+: An easy way to build projects and prototypes around your Raspberry Pi Camera Module with your A+ and B+ Raspberry Pi

The ProtoCam+ is a 'breadboard style' prototyping board that holds your Raspberry Pi Camera Module inside the PCB itself, which lets you solder components around the camera lens... ($15 USD. Ends Jan 27)

 

Tektyte: LogIT Specialised Circuit Testers

The LogIT Series consists of two unique circuit measurement tools which both display accurate readings of voltage, current, and power while also simultaneously logging all measurement data to a MicroSD card and/or PC... ($100 USD. Feb 14 2015)

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

The Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation - even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible, providing mounting access from either side. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options - including multiple wheel material options - and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ is the ideal solution for countless applications.
