We've been working with Royal Mail to lower our posting costs. The good news is we've been successful, so we're passing the savings on to you, our lovely customers.
If you're based in the UK any order less than £40 will cost £1.50 to ship. If you spend more than £40 shipping will be free.
If you're in the EU all orders will cost £3 to ship.
We're still using First Class Post, which means if you're in the UK and order before 2pm Monday-Friday chances are your order will be with you the next day .
For all the details (including new prices for express delivery) please visit our shipping page.
Tired of using LEDs or an LCD as output for your project? If you're looking for a stylish replacement this thermal printer is the answer. It connects easily to your Arduino board and then you can print out a ticker tape of quotes, status reports or sensor readings. It takes easy to source 57 mm wide thermal paper and spits out whatever you tell it to. It's also easy to print text or images using any number of well written libraries for the Arduino board
- Easy to connect. (just power and two wires)
- Print almost anything. (text, barcode, images using easy to interface libraries)
- Make your next project a bit more physical,

Are you questing to find the perfect resistance for a particular project? Here's the tool for you. It's a programmable seven decade resistor. Using the included jumpers you can set the resistance between the two terminals anywhere between 1 and 10M Ohms in 1 Ohm increments. This means finding the right current limiting resistor for an LED no longer requires a pile of mangled resistors. A great addition to any prototyping tool box.
- Produces any resistance between 1 and 10M Ohms quickly and easily.
- Perfect size for easily fitting in a toolbox.
Is your project turning into a birds nest of wires, here's the perfect solution. A 150 mm long strip of 40 pole ribbon cable with a female socket on the end of each and every wire. It's peel-ability means you can create a custom cable from a one to 40 poles. With 10 colours of wire colour coating is also a snap. Finally if you need to make some connections to a breadboard this is made easy with the inclusion of a snap-able strip of headers. You certainly could ask for more, but probably not when looking to organize your projects wiring.
- 40 wires means even the most complicated wiring project can be tackled.
- Easy colour coating with 10 colours (Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Grey, White, Black).
- Connect "pin to pin" or "pin to breadboard" with the included header strip.
- Peel-able, meaning anything from 1-40 pole cables can be created.
The Maker Faire 2013 is over and we've had a winner. There were 2659 LEDs in the box.
We're at the UK's best (or only official) MakerFaire this weekend (March 27-28). At the event we're having a rather traditional "Guess How Many LEDs In a Box" competition and we thought those not attending might like to have a go at it as well, so we're having a two pronged approach.
Come and see us in person, write your guess on a slip and pop it in the guessing box.
Give it a guess on Twitter, simply tweet your guess to @oomlout and include the hash tag #guessTheLEDs
It's two separate contests so two separate prizes, who ever is closest in each contest will win one of our lovely ARDX kits ( http://oomlout.com/AEA/ )
- Only one entry into each competition (ie, one paper guess and one twitter guess)
- If there's a tie in either we'll pick one at random.
- We'll ship the kit anywhere in the world within reason (ie. nowhere with export restrictions)
