We are now selling T1-3/4 (5mm) common anode RGB LEDs! These multi-color LEDs contain red, green, and blue (RGB) elements that can be mixed to produce different colors. The three color elements share a common anode and are encased in a diffused white lens that blends the colors and widens the viewing angle. This product is a pack of five (5) RGB LEDs.

Using an Arduino shield or Raspberry Pi add-on board is often a quick and convenient way to get started on a robotics project, but for maximum flexibility, nothing beats building your own system from standalone boards. Rud Merriam’s Hackaday article describes the design of his Raspberry Pi-controlled robot, for which he opted to use separate modules instead of daughterboards on the Pi, and mentions some of the trade-offs involved in making that d...

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 now have a magnetic encoder pair kit available for our mini plastic gearmotors with extended back shafts. Like our encoder kit for micro metal gearmotors, these kits consist of Hall effect sensor boards that mount to the back of the motors and magnetic discs that fit on the motors’ back shafts. The encoders provide a resolution of 12 counts per revolution of the motor shaft (when counting both edges of both channels); in terms of counts per ge...

We’ve just released our VL53L0X Time-of-Flight Distance Sensor Carrier. With its ability to measure distances up to 2 m depending on configuration, target, and environment, the VL53L0X is a longer-range version of the VL6180X (but without ambient light sensing functionality) that operates using the same principles. This integrated lidar module times how long it takes for pulses of infrared light to reach a target, reflect off it, and arrive back ...

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.

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.

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 - a month 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.

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.

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.
