  • Control an electric circuit from my computer
    Assuming you don't heed my warning and don't mind your friends beating you to pulp, I'll help I've seen usb widgets that can control electrical things. I think I was a power strip that can be so controlled at Likewise, I built a robot whose sensors and motors were controlled via usb. This was before the Raspberry Pi's, so I used a ITX board (small form PC motherboard that was running Linux). Source: 7 months ago
  • Got a full-time job. Now what?
    If you want to get into embedded programming I'd start at Source: 12 months ago
  • How can I get started with embedded systems that isn't Arduino?
    Professional eval systems can be quite good, but what I'd recommend is going over to They have a massive amount of small embeddable boards, as well as i2c peripheral boards when you just need that extra function. They are very easy to prototype in CircuitPython but can also be programmed with Arduino. I know you want to avoid Arduino, so what you want for a more professional environment is... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Where do I begin with Python? is an online store that sells all of this stuff though you can find everything much cheaper on alibaba, ebay and others. Adafruit is host to a whole library of projects and tutorials with comprehensive instructions, code and images. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Need guidance, I'm building a startup with no exp
    Many of the suggestions here fit those cases: the PI, the Arduino. I'd like to recommend that you look at the controllers from AdaFruit. I've seen that they do a substantial amount of work to ensure that their controller boards work well with the chips and displays that thye do. Source: over 1 year ago
  • can someone tell me what kind of connecter this is and where I can find an extension for it
    Look on They're less than a buck. What's the distance between the pins? Source: over 1 year ago
  • Help me understand how to read resistors
    There are millions of great videos and tutorials for the hobby that teach you the programming side as well as the electronics side. and are both known for great tutorials complete with videos and of course explanations on how to use all of the parts they sell in the hopes you'll buy some. But all of the learning is free. 🙃. Source: over 1 year ago
  • is there anything like the Flipper Zero but for kali linux?
    Get a raspberry pi zero. They're like $4. If you have a flipper, what do you need kali for? But with a pi 0 you can hook up all kinds of IO. Go to and check out their treasure. Have fun, obey the golden rule.. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Typeractive Giveaway! 5 Sets of 2x nice!nano Wireless Microcontrollers
    Hi there. Frankly, the most important thing to add to your store isn't PRODUCT, it's DOCUMENTATION. Consider for inspiration. You should have conceptual and end-to-end guides which tie together the lines of product on your site. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Formula Wheel (open hardware)
    I built my own rim with buttons/encoders using a Teensy. The rim attaches to a Fanatec Universal hub. Mine has a USB connection that dangles out the bottom, too. The real problem with that is when you first turn on the wheel. It does a calibration check by doing several rotations left, then right and then left again. I have to remember to disconnect the USB cable or the cable gets wrapped around the entire wheel... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Arduino Uno or Arduino Nano (and why?)
    Get a kit that includes an Uno ($30-60). Do lots of written ( and/or video ( tutorials that use the kit parts. That will give you a good knowledge base to make custom and bigger projects later. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Are FPGAs good for beginners?
    No. Buy an Arduino and riff off one of the projects at or Source: over 1 year ago
    Its all 100% custom design and electronics work. There aren't really kits to do this. You can get most of the parts you would need to build them from Source: over 1 year ago
  • Likely a noob question re helmet electronics control has pretty much everything you need. It has small arduino controllers and tons of led and control tutorials. They look to be out of the gemmas that I usually use(amazon has them for a small markup), but the trinket boards are very similar. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Total nood would like options.
    There are somewhat bigger differences if you look at the ESP-S2 and ESP-S3 CPUs (I would say avoid the S3 for just a little while longer if you're a beginner as support is still a little iffy with some frameworks). Or the ESP32-C3 (which is a totally different CPU and much less supported than the S3 right now). The ESP-S2 can be a USB host and can run CircuitPython (though the regular ESP32 can run MicroPython,... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Hello World. I’m new here.
    Adafruit sells a very nice variety of ESP32s as well as other hardware, and has lots of tutorials on them. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Prototype "Chopper" Armiger Warglaive (WIP)
    For the hardware stuff, I'd recommend going and checking out They sell a lot of the bits and pieces that you need to build things like this, but they also have complete tutorials about how to wire up and write code to control everything they sell. You'd be surprised how simple the basic parts of this kind of project are to get up and running. Source: about 2 years ago
  • So close to getting a Pi 4....
    After weeks of trying to find a Pi4, I look on rpilocator and has 4 GB models in stock. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Where can I find good information about the distinctions of different boards?
    Everything I know I learned at They make a lot of ardiuno-compatible boards, are open-source friendly, have a lot of tutorials and offer a lot of code. Source: about 2 years ago
  • After to many hours, i finaly got Klipper on to my Ender-3 V2 😍😴 sign up for the "email me when in stock". they've had 3 restocks in the last 5ish weeks. They only limit 1 per customer and you have to setup 2 factor for their site so they can crack down on bot purchases but I've gotten a couple recently from them. They're not price gouging either. fyi, its just the pi 4 2gb thats been restocked but thats plenty for klipper. Source: about 2 years ago
  • DIY pc kit to solder
    Is available where you are? Source: about 2 years ago
