Hello everyone! Welcome to Seeed Studio weekly new product post. Let’s check out what’s new for this week.
First, we have HiJack Development Pack back in stock. The HiJack platform enables a new set of small and affordable phone-centric sensor peripherals that support plug-and-play operation. You can now connect your iPhone 3G/3GS/4, iPod Touch, and even iPad with the existing Grove System (Note – the power consumption of connected Grove should less than 5mW and restrict to analog type).
We also have a new LiPo Rider Pro. It offers a new way to power your project with green energy. The LiPo Rider Pro is an affordable piece and extremely easy to use. No programming is required, simply plug in and it works. The internal charger IC handles all the power flow between various components. And the Pro edition now gives you higher load output to 5V than a regular LiPo Rider.
We have a new component for the Grove System. The Infrared Emitter uses an infrared LED to generate infrared signals. It can not only transmit data and commands, but also can simulate a remote to control your home appliance by using an Arduino. The transmission distance is up to 10 meters. Next, let’s talk about the receiver.
The Infrared Receiver is also a Grove module and compatible to the Grove Infrared Emitter. Basically, it’s an IR detector that can receive infrared signals and have a demodulator inside that can decode the signals. We strongly recommend you buy both the Grove Infrared Emitter and Infrared Receiver in order to get the perfect function.
The news of Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer, as you can see there’re more modules coming out! The .NET Gadgeteer is an open-source toolkit for building small electronic devices using the .NET Micro Framework and Visual Studio/Visual C# Express. It’s a new way to make sophisticated devices, an open source and open hardware community project, and a creative tool with something for educators, hobbyists, inventors, and professional prototypers.
