Forum user LuisLabMO posted about his WiFi-controlled plant watering and monitoring system. The system uses SparkFun’s Blynk ESP8266 board to read various sensors that monitor sunlight, moisture content of the soil, and detect the level of water remaining in the watering reservoir. The Blynk signals our 5V relay module to activate the system’s water pump, which irrigates the plants through a drip system. You can read more about LuisLabMO’s wat...

Our micro metal gearmotors are now available in 12 V versions! These high-power motors have long-life carbon brushes (HPCB) and offer the same performance as the 6 V HPCB motors at their respective nominal voltages; the only difference is that the 12 V motor draws half the current at twice the voltage. The new 12 V gearmotors are available across our usual range of 11 gear ratios and in single- and dual-shaft versions. Along with our existing sel...

Love these little guys. Especially the HP motors. Lots of power and lots of fun to use. Oh and super easy to mount.

On Monday, Colin McGinn launched a Kickstarter in order to create a 3D short film using Tru.D 3D, which is a volumetric display system that he designed and patented. The system quickly feeds 3D volumetric objects into a specific viewing area, and each 3D piece forms a frame of an animation to tell a story that can be viewed from any angle.

We’ve updated our Wixel Shield for Arduino with a few minor improvements. The Wixel Shield provides an easy way to connect a Wixel wireless module to your Arduino or A-Star 32U4 Prime, enabling wireless communication and even wireless programming (on some Arduinos). However, the original version of the shield was released many years ago, so it was not designed with the modern pinout of the Arduino Uno R3 in mind.

We started the Pololu Forum in 2004 as a place for product support and discussion, where Pololu customers can interact directly with each other and Pololu engineers. The forum is our preferred medium for handling technical support since the answers can potentially benefit multiple people and can include the experience of other helpful members of the community.

We’ve updated our USB Micro-B Connector Breakout Board with some minor improvements that should make it a little nicer to work with.

We are now offering the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. The Raspberry Pi is a popular credit card-sized computer that can run ARM Linux distributions. As the successor to the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, the Pi 3 has a more powerful processor and adds wireless connectivity. Here are the specific improvements:

We just added 16 new micro metal gearmotors to our already huge selection, including three totally new MP (medium power) gear ratios: 5:1 MP, 210:1 MP, and 250:1 MP. With these new additions, we now have dual-shaft versions available in any combination of our 11 gear ratios and four motor types, giving you 44 different options that work with encoders like our magnetic encoder pair kit.

The updated MP3 Trigger V24 from SparkFun is now for sale. This new version features improved firmware that can read a configuration file from the SD card, making it much easier to use without a microcontroller. We posted previously about a project using an A-Star 32U4 and an MP3 Trigger to make a Scary shaking tombstone. The MP3 trigger also pairs nicely with the Maestro Servo Controllers because you can use a Maestro servo controller’s scriptin...

Great product selection and fast service. I ordered online Monday night, the package was shipped Tuesday morning, and I received it Wednesday afternoon. This company will definitely be my go-to for wires and connectors from now on.

I have not visited, but I did place an order for several small items that are very expensive at the local hardware stores (nylon spacers) and a acrylic robot base. I have to say I had no issues with the ordering process, delivery or items received. I was puzzled by the constant reference to the fact that my order might be delayed due to international postal problems...I live in Kansas USA and they are in Vegas USA. Never mind, all the items I ordered were fine and they arrived quickly. No problems and I will be ordering again from them soon.

My first and only review of any company ever...because of the absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced - ever....and from a total of 4 total people including the owner - I've never been treated so poorly by a company as I was by Pololu.
Response from the owner - 2 weeks ago
This reviewer came to us with demands and an attitude we thought were unreasonable but which he thought were justified by his high-volume project. He seemed most offended by our turning down his potential business because of considerations beyond just the size of his future orders.

Be sure to check out their Return Policy before ordering anything. They do not accept returns for Customer Dissatisfaction. If you open the package to check out your merchandise, you cannot return it for any reason (even if it's unused, unassembled, or undamaged). Makes you wonder why anyone would place an order, receive it, not open it, and send it back for a refund and substantial restocking fee. Gives a new perspective on 'Customer Service' for me. Also makes you wonder why their statement of "Due to the nature of our Business" precludes them from providing the same level of Customer Service on Returns, as the hundreds of other on-line vendors will do.
