Monthly Giveaway January


2013! Maybe you had decorated your New Year’s Eve party with the EL Shield? (see Update-EL Shield Give-away). Because of the 3-day national holiday, the new monthly giveaway was slightly delayed … And now here it comes! This month’s items are the Grove – Encoder and the Grove – Circular LED. They are designed to fit each other in shape and you may make a glowing selection panel combining these two Grove modules.  You are not able to access their product pages currently since they are relatively new products and their pages are not ready yet. These wiki links below might be of some help.
