  • Adafruit RGB LCD Keypad Shield Kit for Arduino (I2C)
    Great RGB LCD shield ...
    Review by Claude
    Soldered up the kit in about 30 minutes, plugged it into an Arduino Uno and it functions well. Display is nice and bright except for blue which is readable but dim in a bright room. The other back panel colour choices were quite bright. On-board buttons are totally debounced and multiple presses are all set via I2C, amazingly simple to use. All this and only power (+/-) and two analog lines are used (I2C). Other I2C devices and sensors can be attached via the same two I2C lines.

    One con: Wish they would include some nylon stand-offs for the lose end of the LCD display, holes are there for the stand-off so why not include them, stand-off would make the shield more durable.

    Wish list: Provide a way of controlling the brightness of each of the RGB LEDs via I2C, currently the light levels are fixed, Full on or off.

  • DFRobot I2C / TWI 4x20 LCD Module
    easy connection, works as expected
    Review by borgchick
    I am just using this as an LCD display, so the cable it shipped with isn't used. To use it, just connect VCC/GND, and SDA and SDL to an Arduino. Download the library in the dfr0154.zip from the link above, and voila. You are up and running.

    Mine shipped with the i2c address set at 0x27. I've seen some LiquidCrystal_i2c libraries' examples defaulting to 0x20. If yours doesn't work, try 0x27 for the address.

    I did also try to run it at 3.3v and 5v, both work fine. Although at 3.3v, the pot at the back has to be adjusted all the way to the left, and even then the contrast is not great. At 5v it is beautiful.

  • DFRobot LCD Keypad Shield for Arduino
    super easy to use, no soldering, bright, great value
    Review by borgchick
    Having this on a Arduino shield makes it so easy to use. Simply put it on your Arduino, and you are ready to use it!

    For example, open the LiquidCrystal HelloWorld example code, change the initial call to liquidcrystal to this:

    LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);

    That's it! Compile and upload, and you are up and running.

    See the documentation here for things like reading the keypad (which also is incredibly simple to use):

Arrival of the Mini UAVs / Drones

Posted on February 26, 2014

By Eric Nantel & filled under Drone, Toys.

RobotShop recently received the first shipment of several new Mini UAVs / Drones. Unlike many small R/C quadcopter kits on the market, these are RTF (Ready To Fly) models, so everything needed to fly is inside the box. Charge the battery, plug it in and take off. Two inexpensive models we tested recently allow you [...]

Arduino to Release Their First Mobile Robot!

Posted on June 03, 2013

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

If you have visited the Arduino website lately, you may have noticed a strange circular board under “Hardware” which Arduino has simply named the “Arduino Robot“. Arduino is set to release this new product in July of this year. The round shape is obviously for maneuverability (just like most robotic vacuums) and although the wheels [...]
